Solar Power Hand Painted Needlepoint Canvas

With the end of summer on the horizon, some of us sun worshippers are not ready for cooler temps. This canvas can serve as a reminder that the cold doesn’t last forever and maybe encourage us to get outside no matter the time of year. Vitamin D does the body good! 
I plan to finish mine as a flat stand up, but this would be just as cute as a small acrylic tray, framed or a door hang!
