I found this image/the inspiration for this image somewhere on the internet, but have since lost the source.  I believe it was on a tea towel originally? Anyways I saw it and liked it and so thought I would copy it in a simplified way.  It kind of reminds me of Ferdinand the bull what with it being a bull who likes to smell flowers.  So without further waffling here it is:

and here is an attempt at a close up.

I was slightly more adventurous with my stitches this time adding french knots to the mix.  The piece was completed in under a week with the aid of a lot of Deadwood episodes!
Comments etc are always appreciated.

Wow!  you have a lot of talent!  The sheer depth in the color choices is really beautiful.  I love this.  I saw your other pieces but before I even read any of the descriptions this one said "Gustave Klimt" to me because of the warm golds in the color palette.  Also I love Ferdinand!  We just read it to my girl, it was my favourite when I was little. <3
