" 3 Poppies "
canvas size 5 x 10 "
I`ve had this done for a few weeks
but with our FIL having health problems
and another stroke a few days ago , time is
spent more on him , as he now refuses to go
into hospital now ! So it is a very trying time
for us all ..
Anyway , i thought i`d better show my face ,
so to speak on here ;o)

The textured background is DIY filler ! ;o)
Much cheaper than textured paste and easy to use too
painted with acrylics , 3 dried poppies that i grew in my
garden last year , a small bark piece from a day out
that i aquired ;o) which is stuck with the filler onto the canvas.

Inside the bark piece is florists foam to place the dried poppies in
but covered with dried white moss type stuff ;o) Not sure what it`s called !!

Green Faux moss , skeletal leaf and 2 partial dried acorns
I`m still not 100% sure on the colours of it
though ;o)
Thanks for popping by ;o)

It's about time you do a post! LOL Hello my dear friend, I'm so sorry to hear about your FIL, it's no doubt it's been a very trying time for all of you. Please know my prayers are with him.

Love this new work of art you've made, such a good idea to use filler instead of textured paste and as you say, much cheaper! Really love the way you used bark as the "vase" for the poppies.

Sending big hugs! xoxo
