|Back to Basics|
Is everyone set for Thanksgiving? It's quite a big hoopla of an ordeal isn't it? I love the time of year and all of the food that is available (fruits and vegetables) but I dislike the expectations placed on me by this holiday. I do own up to placing some of those expectations on myself but the rest of them I feel I have not much control over.
I will be working a little in the studio this week. I started the above piece by making a mock up collage from scraps of painted paper. There is a now a new "scrap collage" that I put together and I think I like the idea enough to paint it. Why switch back to painting directly? There is no real answer other than it seems time to do so. I will see how I like painting on the canvas surface rather than the board. Boards really appeal to me because they offer such a hard surface but they are expensive. Canvasses are inexpensive but the surface is springier and the taping presents a real challenge. So, we will see.
OK, hope everyone has had a good week. Thanks for reading and commenting.
