Grandads Garden Canvas
This is my Great Grandad in his Garden. He died when I was 2 years old but he was a great influence in my Mothers Life. This a gift for her. Great Grandad worked in a cotton mill and his cottage and garden were at opposite ends of the mill. Sadly the mill and gardens have now been flattened and re developed. The tree in the picture is still there though, at least it was last time I went!!
6" square canvas painted with walnut EZ tint in brick and tea dye and coated with a thin layer of my favourite Lumiere Halo paints. A scanned and printed picture is attached with a few collaged gardenish papers finished off with a piece of vintage lace and a layered paper & fabric flower.
