Water Lily greetings card or wall art. A handmade stitched piece of art measuring 6x6 inches square including backing card. The design is appliquéd onto canvas. The item is sold as a greetings card - I also sell a framed version. Cards are left blank inside. This item is made to order, meaning it will be made to my original design (shown above), but each item will be individual and have its own subtle differences. I can make with different fabrics - tell me your fabric colour preferences…
Claude Monet - Water Lilies I have seen some of the large water lilly paintings by Claude Monet in the Kunsthaus, Zurich a few years ago in the exhibition, Monet's Garden. These vast canvases are mesmerising - I remember feeling I could dive into the ponds of painted water. From memory, they seemed to be layers and layers of paint to give an infinite depth to the water, not thickly applied but many layers/
Charles Rennie Mackintosh Spurge, Withyham 1909 This illustration of flowers, much like his other floral illustrations, presents an art nouveau style with beautiful flowing lines and minimal colour schemes.
