Sunflower Shawl Finished!

This morning I got up early, in the mood to finish the Sunflower Shawl. I'm thrilled with the result of combining hand painting and thread painting. The thread painting isn't that noticeable, it's just enough to add definition and additional depth to the sunflowers. The handwriting in the background gives just enough movement so the sunflowers don't look like they are on a blank canvas. My thanks to my friend, Connie, for growing the actual flowers that I used as the subject for my shawl!
