Tapestry: linen warp, hand dyed and spun wool

Since I was 11, I have spent my summers at Ma-me-o Beach, Alberta. One summer a field near the lake was filled with sunflowers. Sandy took a photo of me and the boys in the field. Years later, in an art class, I began a pencil drawing of the photograph on a grid system. I didn’t get very far. However, 4 portions of that grid became the inspiration for this tapestry, grid intact.
