Embroidery / handmade / ready to ship.

The picture shows lovers - a guy and a girl. Their images are beautiful in their purity. In the figure of a young man, there is some kind of awkwardness, constraint, betraying the timidity of the first feeling. It seems so difficult to overcome the narrow strip of space that separates young people! They still have to happen, everything is full of expectation of a miracle ...
A man and a woman are as if lifted up by a great feeling of love to the top of the world. It is important for the artist to express a sense of the spiritual heights of his heroes, to whom everything ordinary seems immensely far. And he depicts a blossoming spring garden in the background.
He needs a frame to hold it in place, but I will let the next owner decide which type of frame and which color will look better. I like these old paintings leaning against the walls because they really don't even need a frame to add to their interior style.
