Vibrant Vista, Stars & Stripes

Vibrant Vista has a real American flag now. I changed it a little bit, because while stitching and using the colours as charted, I noticed the stars weren't visible. And how about an American flag with only stripes? No way, although I am not an American woman, that just isn't done! So I added some white stars and here she is: The well-known Stars & Stripes! I have to admit I have been thinking about changing it into a Dutch flag, but then I considered the artwork isn't Dutch at all and I may encounter some big difficulties changing the colours, so why change it if it is not for the better?

Well, a Dutch flag would have been nice too, but a bit strange in such an American landscape, I suppose! It's a pity there aren't works with Dutch landscapes, they are beautiful too!
I like your work very much!
