"I enjoyed hooking the hair as there were so many different values and colors in it. The background was hooked with slashes of red mixed with the blue to simulate the Impressionist’s brush strokes. Her eyes are my most favorite part. They are the “soul” of the wall hanging. The basket hat gives it a little humor which makes me smile. This pattern, on burlap, was given to me. I usually prefer not to hook on burlap, but I loved this pattern and the original artist, Renoir, was one of my favorites."
