5x7" threadpainting, based on a photo I took last summer in Saskatchewan. : ) Blogged at http://www.mysweetprairie.blogspot.com
Beautiful! I love the colors and texture.
TERRIFIC use of threads to suggest oat fields. The layering is just terrific. I especially like the few heads of oats that bend to the side or are silhouetted against the sky, which adds to the realism of the piece. What a little gem of intense work in such a small space!
Thank you so much!! It's going into a show this week. I'm super excited. ; )
I really like the angle you've chose to give this piece great visual interest and the appeal of lovely texture. Nice!
The FUNNY part is...
I thought it was wheat until a farm friend referred to it as oats. I felt foolish, and renamed it "The Oat Field". I have sold this piece, and later thought I really must research my crops. Turns out... IT'S BARLEY! Hilarious.
To my defence, I own a video by a thread painter from the UK, and she kept calling the green barley "young corn". It wasn't at all. Young corn looks just like blades of grass.
pretty funny stories.
wonderful textue. you really captured the oat heads well.
