Honu II at the Gallery

I've been working like crazy to get Honu II finished for Viewpoints Gallery. The first one was so well received, they asked for another!

Despite some machine/thread issues in the eleventh hour (my Janome 1600 doesn't like Oliver Twist thread), he was delivered safe and sound this morning.

This one is 41.5" x 47", just a little different than the almost 45" square first one. I also used a slightly different background: this is Hoffman "Macaw;" the first one was Hoffman "Delft." I rather like the macaw.

This one,as well as Honu I, just glows! Beautiful work. I think I like the background fabric on this one just a tiny bit more. Love the deep blues.
