It is officially complete and in the hands of the owners, who came by my studio to personally pick up their home portrait. They are delighted with the result and I am pleased as well.
And now for your viewing pleasure, I present Adams Farm Road home portrait!

Personal ephemera used: sheet music for wedding song and lullaby (printed on silk organza by me), baby announcement, moms hospital bracelet, baby's hospital tag, fabric from the hospital baby hat, and fabric from a onesie.
My materials: silk organza, various cotton, silk and rayon threads, interfacing, stretched canvas and acrylic paint.
Techniques: fabric collage and hand embroidery and a bazillion French knots of various, but mostly tiny sizes....
I get so much pleasure from creating these one of a kind treasures, and I love when the owners allow me to share the process. Will you let me do one for you? Email me! (natalya at artbynatalya dot com)
