Hello, first, sad news, one of the kittens passed last night so Paris has four now, it is sad indeed but I expected it from the begging really. I hope she can manage the four she has left and I will of course keep you informed.
I am going to call this 'Poppy Heaven' This is a take on a piece that I did in my journal Here. And I am now thrilled to be able to turn this in to a canvass. I love flowers the sent's and colours they bring. Spring is fantastic for bringing colour. Last year hubby and I went away to Scarborough for a few days. On the way we saw fields of poppy's & linseed and I have since done a couple of journal pages about this experience.
I loved how it turned out so much I decided to do a canvass to. This is a 12 x 9 canvass I have used stencils and paints, sprays paints, gesso etc for the back ground. The actual poppies are torn vintage pages from the book 'Nicholas Nickleby' They were then painted.
Finally the black glass beads were attached and ink is used for the stems. Although these poppies are not painted in a life like form I still feel the wind that makes them dance in the fields and the beautiful sun on my face of the day, when I look at them, to me they're as life like as any other poppy ;0) I am also adding a link to Paint Party Friday I am not a talented painter by a long shot but I do enjoy what I do paint and to me enjoyment is the key. However, if you go to the link of PPF you will see some amazing work and it's wonderful to be amongst it. I am also honnored to have two more followers Sheleen & Zoe I have been visiting Zoe for a long time she is a wonderful crafter and Sheleen is a brand new friend I am so happy you have decided to follow my journey here. Love Dawn xx
