New Designer. New Canvases!

It's so fun to find a new designer who's work you really love.

One day I stumbled on Shelly Penko from Austin Texas.  I fell in love with her colors.  Are you surprised?


Her work is beautifully painted and loving and quirky.  We chatted, and she agreed!

Six months later and we have canvases.

Just a few to start.  You can see them online here.


 Peace by Shelly Penko


 Sitting on top of the Wool by Shelly Penko


 Journey of Sisterhood by Shelly Penko


 Tender Heart by Shelly Penko


Rooster by Shelly Penko


Each is different than the others.  So many styles and themes, it was hard to pick the first grouping.

I think I may have to stitch the rooster.  I've never wanted a rooster canvas but this one speaks to me.  This means a stitchguide could be coming soon -ish.

Check out Shelly's site.  Don't be surprised at how many cool things she has, not only paintings but fabrics and bed linens and iphone cases.  All kinds of great items.  I want them all. 

Let me know what you might like to see translated into needlepoint and check back here Sunday for a little Shelly surprise!

You know I love surprises.

I love her work!! It's wonderful. I love the expression on the sheep with the rooster on his head and the Sisterhood is to die for. Heck, I'd love to do them all!

Wow!! I love her! She has a beautiful soul - her art and words have truly touched me… and there goes my budget! I love 3 that you've chosen: Peace, Journey of Sisterhood, and Tender Heart. I also like She Dreams in Color (though not sure about stitching it) and Waltz of the Maples, which I'd buy/stitch in a heartbeat! Night Orchids and Elephant Festival look like they would be fun to stitch.

Gorgeous! I want to cuddle the puppy in Tender Heart! Ruth, you really need to stop! Too much temptation.

Я очень рада знакомству с вашим творчеством. Это просто удивительно и прекрасно! Я раньше ничего подобного не встречалась! Ваши работы прекрасны! Извините, я плохо знаю английский язык, но чтобы видеть красивое, язык знать не обязательно, верно?
