The artwork should be viewed with light coming from the sides, because the relief effect produced by the embroidery defines the darkest shade. If the light falls directly in front of the painting, the subject is not clear.

I read the article about you in the recent Inspirations magazine. I love to read about male stitchers. When I met my husband he was quite happy to tell me that he could knit and to be honest he’s very good at ornamental canvas work as well. Beautiful work, keep it up.

The paint that you had on the embroidery is really a fantastic idea.
