Trialing some new designs - Version 1

Design inspiration

This painting looks so modern, but it was published in The Book of Miracles, anonymous, circa 1552

Screen Shot 2023-02-21 at 8.38.47 pmThe translation of the text says

"In 1300A.D., a terrible comet appeared in the sky and in this year, on St Andrews Day, an earthquake shook the ground so that many buildings collapsed.  At this time, Pope Boniface V111 established the first Jubilee year.

But I think it was the shape of the comet and the colours in this picture  that I thought was so modern.  I wonder if it would make a good embroidery?

It would certainly be interesting to see what you could do to turn it into an embroidery. It is so successful as a painting, and they don't always translate well..
