There is a really cool story behind this jacket......I am working with a 20 something woman who works at a nursing home......one of her patients is a 95 year old woman who is an artist.........this is one of her paintings.... this young lady asked me to turn her artwork into thread and put it on a denim jacket for both of them, so this is the first one and am now doing the other one which is exactly the same......I am amazed by the talent of people young and old!! I decided to put a close up of it, too.....I have also included a pic of her original artwork....the young lady who had me do this had me slightly change a few of the colors to show up better on the denim....

You did a marvelous job bringing her art off the canvas and onto the back of a jacket! So many little details that I'm astonished at how the jacket so faithfully exhibits the artwork. I admire your willingness to help others out, and to make someone else happy!

It just goes to show that age is no barrier. A wonderful piece of art and what a great job you have really done it justice

This lady must have been in the Art Deco area of art. Georgia O'Keeffe and the like. Wonderful job. You are amazing!

Vicki, this is wonderful. I wonder if the lady would give you the right to sell this beautiful embroidery design for her and you could send her some "pin money" for her needs. Whaddayathink?

what a beautiful thing for the young lady to think of doing. Great work by you, the possibilities are endless! Our artwork by local Aborigine people would look fabulous.
