This batik is very special for a number of reasons.
First, it is a gift for my sister's birthday which is actually
tomorrow. Second, it was done by my very dear friend,
Dikki Van Helsland. She is an excellent batik artist.
Third, it is of our childhood home, and one in which
my parents lived for most of their married life, some
63 years. I hope you like it as much as my sister does
and I do! Click on the image to see it bigger. There
is embellishment with acrylic and colored pencil for
