The Pentecost Tree

Here is my final draft on canvas this time.

AWESOME!!!!!!! I'm SO glad you attempted to do this on your own! 10 times more special now :)
One thing I noticed in the original(s) was a very textured surface to the paintings. I'm not exactly sure how the artist did that, but if I had to guess he used some heavy layers of "gesso"- a sort of chalky glue used to pre-coat a canvas to accept paint. Regardless, your paintings turned out great!
You Rock :)

Thanks, Big Brother! I don't think I'd have been brave enough to try if it weren't for your encouragement.

Now I can't wait to do the next ones! I think I've been bit by our family bug. Well, I guess I could've put it off even longer. Poppop didn't start painting 'til he was 70. :)
