Altering Vintage Canvases

I may have found a new fun passion…..

This is a new technique for me, I received an unfinished canvas from a friend of my mother’s and they said I could do anything with it….they didn’t know what they were asking. The dragonfly and florals were the only things on the canvas a…nd I put my touch on it with texture and my Cubists style along with vintage papers painted over with browns at the top and bottom, leaving only the florals and the dragonfly, adding some browns to connect them. This was the finished product, definitely different for me but honestly it makes me want to bombard garage sales and find canvas to alter and make my own!!!! It was too fun and I can’t wait to see what people think of this experiment……
