American Folk Artists like Grandma Moses Mattie Lou O'Kelley taught us by example that it is never too late to begin the work you love. Interestingly enough, both of these prolific painter's lives mimicked each other's, and their artwork is in a similar naive style which tell stories and create a special and quintessentially timeless moment in history. We are so pleased and proud to present this artwork reproduction of  Mattie Lou's Big Farm in the Spring artwork for the crewel embroidery enthusiast. A gorgeous and interesting interpretation by Susan Goldsmith, you'll use a variety of stitches and art techniques, including applique work to complete your design. What an absolutely wonderful way to have a piece of one of the world's most collected folk artist painter's works in your own home!
