Needlepoint Portraits from Maria E. Peneres UPDATED

Thanks to Amy's sharp eyes, I have an interesting article on the needlepoint portraitist Maria E. Pineres to share this morning. She takes photos of her subjects, adjusts and manipulates the photograph using PhotoShop, and then stitches the piece on needlepoint canvas.   Her website, second link below, shows more portraits and her gallery schedule.
