    Tropical Breeze

    I had a lot of fun thread painting this palm tree. A friend asked me to do a wall hanging for her of a palm tree and this is waht I created.

    I want to say "Beautiful in it's simplicity" meaning the palm tree and birds create an uncluttered visage - but - the thread painting is complicated to do(!) so it's really not 'simple'.

    Awesome!
