This is the third prairie landscape and everyone was marvelling about the truck. It really is just a simple photo transfer, but the effect is astonishing when it is directly on the background. It really looks like the entire piece is a photograph. My friend at work who purchased this piece took one look at this and said it was a photo of his back yard fields as a child with the truck and everything. There is a lot of fun threadplay on the golden landscape fabrics. The sun is some shimmery sheer silk with hand stitched sun rays. It turned out to be very delicate but bright. I placed the truck so the bright side is sun side and it worked out quite nicely.
