A sampling of new canvases this week.  The first Japanese Woman is a magnificent design, I wish I knew if it was designed by Theresa Lee herself and when.  This may be the last, or near the last new canvas of this design as it was discontined in May of 2012 by Colonial Needle.  A customer brought my attention to it so I called and ordered it last week; they commented that it was the last one left.

Japanese Woman

A fun and delicious new piece by Cooper Oaks, if you think the colors are bright they are!  Its so bright and saturated in color that its a piece that gets noticed.

New “Gossip” by Birds of a Feather for 2013.  Very fun and simple in design.

Live with the Creatures is in my book a classic by Carriage House offered by Ewe & Eye.  No animal lover should be without this one.  

Live Amongst the Creatures

A clever design by Susan Wallace Barnes for Cooper Oaks.

Jerusalem round
Flower Cat, part of a new series by Lee NeedleArts.  Love the line of the tail.  and fun juxtaposed next to “Meow” by Ewe & Eye.

Beachy canvases by Cooper Oaks, the later “Ocean Breeze” is relatively new design by Warren Kimble.  Nice composition and color without being over complicated.

Ah, going back to what we imagine was a simpler time full of hope and optimism.

Always intrigued by different shaped canvases is this fun fan by Zecca.  Its like 6 small canvases all fanned out to one.
