The inspiration for this rug is a beloved 100 year old canoe given to me by my father when I was 15. The canoe has recently found a new home. The background was inspired by a watercolor I saw at an art show.
The pattern was drawn by Capri Boyle Jones. Capri hand-painted the wool for the background to create the painted effect. I started this rug in a class by Capri.
About the Artist:
I was introduced to rug hooking by Sandra Grant when I retired, and moved permanently to Vermont about 6 years ago. I continue to be inspired by Sandra Grant, my friend and neighbor; and my mentor.
