I was asked to do a wall-hanging for a friend's large kitchen. She was quite specific as to what she wanted. It had to include a red barn, as her kitchen table was made from barn board.
There were to be lots of sheep as her grandfather was a sheep farmer.
Lots of orange foliage had to be in the background, as Fall is her favourite season. And what is a farm with a horse or two?
Also a few birds had to highlight the sky.
The border was to be a pine colour to pick up the colour in her flooring and the binding had to be black to pick up the colour of her appliances.
I think that after a few tries with colour, it was exactly what she had asked for.
