I wanted to share a wee little preview of my upcoming Making Lessons Class on felting Sunflowers. This class really excites me because it is like painting with a fiber medium! Those who are joining me, you are going to love it and I know you will want to start felting everything in site! I hope this picture speaks for itself.
I used this Van Gogh painting as my model.

This one Van Gogh finished in 1888. He painted it while he was in Arles, Bouches-du-Rhone, France.
And below is just a peek at my version done in needle felted wool. I love working with wool in the winter, something about it just seems cozy and right. Can you tell I have Vincent on the brain? I have been preparing for a painting class in my Master Studies Series, along with two workshops I am giving for girls of the American Heritage Girls Club which I am really excited about.
