Woven Country Icons

22x15 watercolor on 140 lb cold press paper, two actual works cut into horizontal strips then verticals and woven together as one piece.
I had painted the first version that had fresh zinnias, grapes and lemons in the blue/white spongeware and didn't like it.  Then I painted it again as a demo for a workshop but still didn't like it.  Finally cutting it up was the only answer and I do like its appearance now woven together sitting on a kitchen table in front of a window.
