Leaf on Serenity Lane Canvas


Hello and Happy Sunday to all my sweet creative friends.  

There was an old canvas hiding in my stash that I started but never finished and honestly - didn't like it at all.  So I redid it.  

For some reason, I put modeling paste all over it.  I remember that I had just received my "noodle" brush in the mail and I was playing with it!!!  I made long narrow lines of paste all over the canvas - how crazy is that???!!!!  

Here is the unfinished canvas. 

And so I began painting. Here it was after the first go around!! 
I used DecoArt paints.

The completed painting - Leaf on Serenity Lane. 

Hopefully you can see a bit of the texture on this one - just like on the first unfinished one!! 

Thanks bunches for stopping by to say hello and thanks bunches for your comments. My "reply" button doesn't work on the comments. Someday I hope blogger will help fix it! 

Have a SUPER FINE week. 
Hugs. j.

This autumn canvas has got to be my favorite of yours, with those brilliant colors and the texture! I truly think the texture is perfect for it! My oh, my, you know how to capture the feeling of a fall day through the light, the colors, and wow, I can even smell the air! You've knocked my socks off, again, with this lovely makeover! GORGEOUS! This is art!
