Patchwork Wall Art

Vicki & Stuarts Patchwork - face on!

Finito! ;)*

I found this beautiful artwork while poking around on flickr the other day.  Tanya spent 160 hours on completing this patchwork wall art-- complete with 1,321 squares at the size of a coffee table.  Doesn't that just make your back hurt?

It reminded me of a project I did back in college in art class.  Our assignment was to take a black and white picture and turn it into color-- focusing on the shades.  This is a picture of Shania Twain {I believe from an issue of Rolling Stone, era 1997}.  I chose to do this picture of her because she is stunning, as always.  I have always wanted to proudly hang it somewhere, but have never been able to find the right spot.  The hours I spent hunched over this seemed endless and that's probably why I love it so much.

Do you have fun artwork in your home?  Feel free to pass them along to us at admin AT freshnestdesign DOT com.
