For Perfectly Bohemian in the Enchanted Forest Swap, embroidery on printed fabric, based on the painting “Portrait of a Young Man Wearing a Red Cape and Large Hat,” ca. 1795-1800, by Francois-Xavier Fabre.

Wow! First of all, great stitch work as always.  Secondly, this is such a great idea!  Has a very fine art feel to it, and I want to see more.   Cheesy
