This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Psyche Entering Cupid's Garden designed from a painting by John William Waterhouse shows Psyche trying to enter cupid's garden to see what he looks like in broad daylight.  At first, Cupid had been ordered by Venus (his jealous mother) to punish Psyche for her beauty, but instead Cupid ended up falling in love with Psyche at first sight, but only agreed to meet with her at night to prevent her identifying him.  Thus, Psyche's curiosity has gotten the best of her, and in this scene she is seen peeking past the opened garden gate hoping to catch a glimpse of Cupid.  Upon opening the gate, she is enthralled to see a beautiful sumptuous garden with a stately mansion, vegetation and flowers.  Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
