Blue Horned Violet

Blue Horned Violet
9" x 9"

My Mom's favorite color was blue.  My dear friend Deborah also likes blue a lot.  Thinking of both of them as I debated how to respond to the latest FFF challenge of a flower in the mode of a painter.  I chose to do a Horned Violet ala Georgia O'Keeffe.  I also remember when I transplanted a LOT of these violets around a large bush in our back yard.  They grew and thrived; maybe too much.  However, Mom loved them.  Precious memories.

Since I lost my Mom on July 20, I've been struggling with a LOT of emotions.  This challenge and the thread painting [which was boring], has helped me cope.  Deborah's birthday is August 16.  Hope she likes this little 'painting'.  If she doesn't she can choose from something else that I will be creating in the small category.  I will be creating many more small items for a one person show next year.

it may have been "boring" to do, but it isn't boring to look at and admire! LOVELY!

If it was boring to do all the stitching, the results certainly paid off. Very lovely with the flower filling the whole space.
