Another She Art Canvas

Made this one for my mother's birthday.  Now that she's seen it, I can post here!


 That's a real bird feather peeking out of her hat! Found in the front yard and sprayed with purple mist.

I had two inspiration pieces that I used in creating this one.  My inspiration for the tree can be found here with many thanks to Junelle, and my inspiration for the dress can be found here with many thanks to Eniko since I completely lifted the jacket design from her!

She didn't mention the adorable kitties and the fairies. I'm known as "crazy cat lady" cause I love my cats,and presently have 3 I love fairies and do a whole Christmas tree in fairies every year. She hit upon my favorite things, my love of all things Red Hat and who I am at this stage in my life. I am so proud of this piece and so honored to have received it from her. I absolutely love it! I'm so proud of Cheri, all she does and who she has become. She's multi talented and inspirational, and I love her so very much. I will treasure this piece forever. It's the second most wonderful piece of herself that she's given me. The first was a quilt that defies description. I'm a very lucky Mom.

I don't really know what to say after reading your Mum's comment - it is beautiful and it is no wonder you have been able to create such a beautiful piece of art with her as inspiration!

Ok...I've ooohed and ahhhed over this piece and studied all the lovely detail. It's fabulous, Cheri! LOVE the cats and fairies and the feather and all the wonderful details here. I was thinking about how much your mom must love this piece and then I read her beautiful comment above and it was verified. It's gorgeous, Cheri. Well done, my friend. Your work is just fantastic!
