Freut mich

Altering a canvas is the challenge at Awfully Big Art Adventure this week.    I used a 3 x 5 inch canvas along with a thicker 2 x 4 inch canvas on top.  The image is from Gail Russakov.

Freut mich” popped out of a German text book

freut-mich

translated it means “pleases me

Many thanks to Judy of Mangaroa Made for presenting me with the One Lovely Blog Award, that’s so very nice!

  23. What a gorgeous canvas! You always manage to make me catch my breath, Patty. The colors are terrific, colors I love, but don’t work in as much… I always seem to gravitate to the earthier tones…. I will work in these more, you have inspired me!
