Lynn, this is so beautiful!!! I've been seeing a lot of sea things lately and am feeling I need to do a crazy quilt seascape. Oh, if only I could stitch faster.

I love your little baby chick too! How precious!

I just don't know , really don't know, how you keep on coming up with these amazing ideas and actually produce them! I am still working on something I thought about in June and still...nothing!!
Keep that inspiration coming!

The texture is amazing! Loving the meshy, netty texture at the bottom.

Sarah said...

I do love the way you combine the cute, the whimsical, the serious and the beautiful all in one piece. Really...an octopus with sun glasses...too much...but fun!...lol!

stampdiva said...

The textures are outstanding. Fantastic artwork. Lynne M x

Hellemor said...

Gosh, this is a stunning piece of art. I love all the different elements you used.

julie m said...

another wow when your page loaded. like the use of the string and gauze on the bottom. didn't have time to comment the other day, but i also like the ccc#7 entry. the red background really sets it off.
i hope the little chick is doing okay. i grew up on a farm and tried to save every runt and injured animal we had. by the time i was 8 i had enough experience to have a pretty good success rate considering the shape of the critters when i started. lots of tears shed over the ones that didn't make it but so much joy when i was successful.

Shawn Caro said...

Absolutely incredible ,Lynn! How I love your work. Thanks for the inspiration.

Lynne Phelps said...

I love the deep (pun intended) saturated colors, and all the texture is FAB! I LOVE that metal mer-couple embracing! Everything is just wonderful!

Christine said...

Oh, this is what you were working on at my house! It turned out beautifully!!! I can't wait to get together again.

xx

Nan said...

Wow Lynn! This is really wonderful! I love the ocean theme pieces you have been doing! I hope your little chick is doing alright.

Kim said...

Hey, Lynn!! Love the steampunk-inspired canvas--it's gorgeous!!! Also--congrats on being a mom again!!! :-) I didn't know you had chickens! So do my sister and her family--the kids entered poultry at the county fair a couple of weeks ago and placed 4th, 5th, and 6th. Hope your little chick continues to do well!!!
