Isn't She Lovely
This is our first of three geishas that we are doing for a class project. Who else can it be but Madame Butterfly? She even has a butterfly background. I love that she is facing away from the canvas - she is of course looking (and waiting for) Pinkerton to return to her and their son. This is the most beautiful and bittersweet moment in Opera and I am taking extra care with her!!
WOW, now I have connected two of my great loves - opera and needlepoint! I can't wait to finish. And you all thought I was a fly boy (girl) geek!
Keep looking up - I'm there
