One of my first...

altered canvas paintings is this one called Potter's Shrine. It was a challenge because it contains many different processes. The frame is a faux finish, made to look like a wooden frame with thickly applied gesso and lots of texture. Texture.... one of my favorite elements. It seems the more, the better. The paint is acrylic gouache.  It also contains image transfer, foil lettering, and some rusty metal pieces to give it the altered touch.  It measures 16 x 20 inches.
