Hand Painted Needlepoint Canvases

Sorry - due to the Search Engines - and others - hotlinking directly to our images - and proliferating Copyright Infringements - we are removing all large images from these blogspots. Please visit -  JAN VOICH DESIGNS - to view the large images.

Handpainted needlepoint canvases are a luxury for many. Yes - they are more expensive than the silk-screened canvases and other mass-produced techniques -- yet the time required to paint a canvas by hand is extremely long.

The finest canvases use natural pigments finely ground - then mixed with natural adhesives.

Depending on the design - often these canvases are stitch painted - carefully painting each stitch onto the canvases - as seen below.
