Charles Wysocki was an artist who specialized in created works that celebrated American life in days gone by. This charming design for Crewel lovingly recreates one of his pictures showing a bustling little town on the water’s edge. Stitched in Persian wool yarn and cotton embroidery thread on homespun fabric, “On the Bay” includes horse-drawn wagons and carriages bustling between places of business such as fruit stands and a bakery. In the background, seagulls fly in between two American flags that flutter in the breeze. This gallery style crewel design is a perfect way to introduce Wysocki's spectacular folk art into your home. Simply lovely!
