An Altered State of Mind

I have decided to dive head first into the deep end of mixed media painting and altered art. Now that I have begun, I can't stop!

I have been experimenting with different ways to create texture on canvas.

Revelation 22:2
"On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding it's fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations."

This first painting is of a "tree of life". I started with a canvas panel, which I then decoupaged with tissue paper (recycled from Christmas of course), and then covered that with acrylic gesso.
The rest is painted with acrylics, and detailed in black ink.
