ABAA - Canvas Art





This is my entry for the ABAA framed canvas challenge.

I was lacking inspiration for my canvas and after a really busy week was feeling very pressured to create something this evening before the deadline.

I took inspiration from the English poets book that I bought for 30p in a charity shop when we made the wooden blocks last year, wanting to do something in a similar vein i decided to start there.

I found this picture of Robert Bridges and instantly fell in love with this image of a man who looks so troubled. I dont remember ever noticing it before, but i feel it has alot of depth.
Its a picture that provokes thought for me, and i am extremely pleased with my finished result.

This will now hang in my sitting room, where i can always see it. I adore it and havent been this happy with a piece of my own work for such a long time.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Oh this IS wonderful! Isn't it amazing how some things just come together! And to think this was a book you bought some time back - and was probably well loved before you ever found it. This piece definitely was meant to be!

OH Jaqi ~ I can see why you are in Love with this piece. It really IS wonderful, so full of emotion. Great texture with your raised letters and heart!!! Extra nice too that you got so much inspiration from a book you rescued (that's what I tell myself I'm doing when I bring all sorts of treasures home from second hand stores ;)
