Vacationing in Ireland several years ago, I was fortunate to have come upon this setting of a man playing music along the roadside while his children and several small lambs where playing and dancing. From one of those photos, I worked up this fiber collage piece. The area was very rural and colorful, the perfect setting for such a piece.
Images show the front, close-ups and the back. Louise attaches a certificate of authenticity to her work, which is a nice touch!
