Be it every so humble, there's no place like home.
When Kathy Schmitz was a little girl, her Grandpa Bert had a farm that was the most magical place to her. While the old farmhouse was rather humble, it holds some of her favorite childhood memories. Being a lover of all things miniature, she was fascinated by the honey bees he kept. She imagined what a wonderful house she could make out of those beehives! There were so many places to play as a child and she was always tickled to find a bird's nest. On rare occasions, she could peek inside the nest and see tiny speckled eggs. When she thinks of the places that feel like home, the farm always comes to mind.
Drawing these memories with pen and ink has added a subtle texture to the artwork that she loves. She also chose to eliminate borders on the images in the panel to make them easier to cut to the sizes needed for quilts and banners, stitcheries, and every manner of project.
