This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Love's Messenger by Marie Spartali Stillman shows a young woman sitting by her window totally absorbed in her favorite pastime of stitching when she is interrupted by a dove who brings sweet renderings to her in the form of a message from her lover. Notice the richness and tone of the colors in this scene! The burgundy, greens, etc not only warm up the scene and give it life, but are rich in tone and give the scene a quality of vibrancy. The prospect outside her window is mesmerizing as it would be a pleasant sight to be able gaze outside a window and see such sumptuous landscape. This is the first fine art pattern we created at Sunrays, and it will always mean something special to us. No blended colors are used in our patterns. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect. Only full cross stitches are used in our designs.
