Songs of Georgia

This brooch shows the needlepainting of a landscape from the beautiful country of Georgia, located in the Caucasus mountains. I went there from May to July this year as an artist in residence and was amazed by the gorgeous landscape, the incredible views, beautiful castles and chapels, so many shades of green and amazing colors in the sky..every turn of the road shows another landscape more beautiful than you can imagine, sometimes dramatic, sometimes peaceful, sometimes everything at the same time. This particular view was as we were walking out of the beautiful tiny village of Chkopiani, another tiny Georgian village that just looks like a master painting, villagers roaming around, dogs relaxing on the porches, delicious fruit hanging on the trees.. it gives the sense of a land that is the way it’s always been, in spite of the many changes people have tried to bring to it.
