Hi, I am Mathew George. I love to create art via cross stitch. It is therapeutic, and here for this piece of Snake River, I took many months to complete. There are about ten types of cross-stitch designs. In this piece, I have used multiple types to simulate a painting.
I have a little history of Snake River. It is the largest river in North America that crosses from six US states: Idaho, Washington, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, and Wyoming. Native Americans have inhabited this river for 11,000 years. The Shoshones, a Native American group, used sign language for weaving baskets, and it was misrepresented as Snake River.
I have found that doing creative activities helps one focus and attain a particular type of calmness in one’s personality. In fact, it has helped me in my work, where I need a tremendous amount of focus. I hope you can let me know how creative art has helped you. If you haven’t done any art, just try to see the impact it has on you😊😊.
