This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled The Annunciation designed from a painting by William Adolphe Bouguereau shows the Virgin Mary being visited by an angel to inform her that she has been chosen to bear the Christ child who will be the savior to the world. Mary is shown in prayerful position in contemplation of the blessed event. The colors in this scene are soft, mellow and beautiful. Notice the angel's position of her right arm pointing to the heavens as she is giving God credit as the author and creator of this task to be carried out, and it is upon his authority that she make this visit. 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.
