Lighting really does make a difference.  I took the photo on the left inside and the one below outside on a cloudy afternoon.  The one taken outside has much truer colors. Note to self... take photos outside whenever possible.

I'm glad this one is finished.  I was a bit out of my element and it took some pondering to decide how to finish it.  I was worried that I worked all the way to the edge and it would be hard to frame.  Then it hit me, it can be mounted on mat board and then framed so I didn't have to cut it up and put it on canvas. I hope my friend likes it. I'm very pleased with it. Part of me wants to frame it and put it on my wall.  

Thanks for hanging in there with me during the saga of this mixed media canvas. 

Paper, mat board, corrugated cardboard, gelli prints, craft foam, texture paste, paint, burlap, string, E6000 and Scotch Quick Dry glue were all used to make this piece. I just have one more thing to say....


  1. WOW! WOW! WOW!!! Boo, your piece is AWESOME!!! I think this may be one of my favorite things you've might even top the list! I LOVE the crow and hay bales! I really like that parts of it are so 3-D. You never cease to amaze me! <3 <3<3 Your friend is going to love this just as much as I do! <3

  2. What a lucky friend! :D

  4. Wow Boo. I think this is my favourite piece of yours so far. The colours are amazing (yes photographing outside makes a huge difference), so vibrant & perfectly Autumnal & I am not surprised you are chuffed with it. Anyone would be. Your friend is going to LOVE it <3<3<3 :o) xx
