This is my second piece of art by Don Chuck Carvalho that I have transformed into embroidery. This piece took forever! forever! Definitely willing to bet around 100 hours, give or take.. I am giving this to a friend of mine, sorta bittersweet as I love it more than anything I have ever stitched.. but at least I can see if from time to time Smiley Let me know what you think!?
