Bliss of Solitude- a double canvas with Decoart

Hello Friends

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.......
these lines are from the poem 'I Wandered lonely as a cloud' popularly known as 'Daffodils' by William Wordsworth.

These lines kept on playing in my mind when I was creating this canvas and I kept on pondering on the word Solitude..........although the dictionary meaning is 'The state or quality of being alone or remote from others'....solitude is not loneliness, it is a vibrant space which is blissful and full of creative possibilities.........  enough with the philosophy........

Here is a mixed media double canvas Bliss of Solitude with DecoArt products

I have used the DecoArt Modelling Paste  with a palette knife to give background texture , various stencils are used to create additional texture and colors by DecoArt Media Misters
The focal image is the wonderful Andy Skinner Stencil - Strike the Pose (12"x3")

There are so many layers in this work....here you can see the book pages, embossing powders, DecoArt Crackle paste..............

some areas have been distressed using a pumice stone ...and some highlighted with DecoArt metallic-lustre in Iced Expresso.
