My love for art goes deeper than just needlecraft, I have had a great appreciation for art for many years. One of my favorites will always be traditional tattoo flash, my body is literally covered in it. I have wings, anchors, pin up girls, etc.. So does art reflect life or vice versa is something I am always asking myself! I got lucky on this venture, and found a really cool artist who does amazing artwork out of Brazil. With his permission I have started doing some of his designs in embroidery, here is my first of a series I will do.. let me know what you think and please don't copy images.

Very nice satin stitch!

Question about the last picture, I usually use a white background when I take pictures of my projects because I can't get black poster board to photograph correctly (it comes out grainy). What's your secret? Is it a black cloth?

ETA: I now have "Innagaddadavida" stuck in my head. Wink

thank you. I really need to start picking colors out before I get started, have a bad habit of NOT dong that with embroidery.

It is beautiful.
