This piece was commissioned as a wedding gift for a couple who lives in the Lake Tahoe area.
The composition was based on a very tiny stock photo provided by the client. While I do not usually encourage the use of stock photos as a starting point, this was what the client provided, and so that is all I had to work with. My job as an artist on commission is to create a richly detailed sewn interpretation of whatever idea or photo the client provides.
The artwork is 11x14 mounted onto a 16 x 20 canvas, with a fabric border and contrast stitching.
