Sketchbook Challenge - Natural Surfaces


Sketchbook Challenge - Natural Surfaces

We stayed at The Lodge at Mount Magazine State Park in Arkansas. This huge fireplace was in the lobby. Athough the fireplace is manmade, the rock it was made from is a natural surface, which is the current theme for the sketchbook challenge.

I took a 4 1/2 day class with Katie Pasquini Masopust called Stitched Paintings. It was a fabulous class, and this is my first finished piece. It is framed rather than bound (edges are finished with satin stitching).
