While in England after visiting my brother and SIL in Cheshire on the drive back to West Country, I had made arrangements to meet Alison Holt at her studio. I have to say it was one of the highlights of the trip for me. I will try and post a picture of myself with her at her studio. It was fantastic to see her work up close, beautiful!!

What a great piece! It reminds me of a fellow Canadian, Monika Whalen's work. Those canola fields are beautiful! I love it! I bet it gets snatched up quickly, if it will be one for sale.

Ally, I enlarge the picture I'm using for these to actual size (I do these as an 5x7 piece, so not too large. Then I use my light table to trace the outlines and main lines of the house onto tracing paper.  For this picture I used fabric for the sky and grass. I sometimes paint them.  On this one I traced the house onto a white fabric and then painted it the various colors before cutting out and fusing onto the background. Then I TP'd it all. The landscape was all freehand, but pretty well matches the landscape in the original picture I was given.

Of course there is always creative license.

BJ - Your thread painting of the house of your friend, is lovely.  Bet you are really pleased with it. I would live to try a building but my perspective is not that great would have to trace the building. I have been asked to do a cottage.can you tell us your methods, is your sky painted or fabric etc.

will be watching with interest the challenge.

A finish!

Just finished this one. It is a house my friend lived in for many years and she asked me to do it for her. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I think it is my favorite of the houses I've done so far.

Now on to the challenge piece for Sharon.
