Lay down my Burden_JPaineDawes

One of my all time favorites that Elvis Presley sang is “Down by the Riverside”. And one of my favorite places to be is the calm and peace of the White River at sunrise and sunset. The light reflects on the water and the woods reflect back onto themselves. It is a great place to ‘lay your burden down’ and reflect on your life.

This is a hand dyed piece of textured cotton in browns and yellow on white. It was a perfect reflection. Trees and grasses are free form stitched in browns and colors. Accents of orange leaves, blue water and sky were done with Prismacolor pencils.
