Crochet and painting

I'm not sure this is finished, it certainly isn't a professional photo.  I'm challenging myself to finish 3 works by the end of August and apply to a non-traditional fiber works show.  Honestly I think it is a waste of money.  But if I don't apply to shows, I will never hope to be in one.

It's four layers ... the back is a painted piece of particle board, then a layer of crochet (enlarged broomstick lace stitch I just learned), then a painting, then more crochet with white thread.  

I've been incorporating a tapestry needle in some of the work and I kind of love what you can do with it.  You can enlarge sewing stitches just as well as crochet.

I always use so much red and purple!  I started a blue and green piece and it went nowhere. Hm.
