This one took a long time, longer than I expected and intended but I love the end results. I don't often paint with that much blue but it happens to be my favorite color so it was a real treat! The embroidery was tedious and fun and reminded me of my grandma sitting at the table with white cloth and turning it into beautiful flowers with her magic needle. I think I'll call this one Xochitl, the Nahuatl name for Queen of the Flowers, or Field of Flowers.
