Leigh Ann, a friend of my wife, does beautiful crochet. Last year, 2020, when she visited, just before the covid shut down, she told us of a dream she had a few nights previous. She said that she dreamed that she crocheted a petal on a ring and then had me paint it. She brought it along and gave it to me to paint on it like in her dream. I asked her if she wanted it painted in a certain way, she said no, just paint. I did well over 20 test paintings on printouts of the original photo before attempting to paint on crocheted yarn. Below are pictures of the work in progress from the original crocheted work to the finished painted crochet. I worked each section from the middle to the outer edge, first going darker and then lighter. I then worked on gradations in the yellow and then finally gradations of the large petals, doing every other one to give a feel of one over the next.
