Melinama does Illustration Friday: "Clumsy."

bulgarian embroideryIn this nadir of the year, I could bearly rouse myself out of the papa-san chair to do this painting, but I'm glad I did. It's inspired by a postcard I picked up in Bulgaria, of embroidery from Dupnitza. I was irked by my CLUMSY attempts (and failure) to capture the wonderful vegetable-dye colors of the original, but it was fun anyway.

I really like the pattern and colors. There is a cheerfulness and optomism in the simplicity the design.
