Just a peek

as you can see above, I am working on a smallish canvas,
this is a gift for someone.  Well its really not a gift
until I see the finished product, if I don't like it
its not going anywhere.  I first started with gesso, then did
some underpainting with bright bold colours, toned it down with
  some white paint, then did some stencilling
with Modeling paste.  So that's as far as I got so far. Today
I will be drawing in the central focus of the piece.  I haven't
decided exactly what that is, I have a couple of ideas and will
have to see what comes out.

I wanted to show you a brilliant idea I had
I had this wire contrapitation and was going to
throw it out and decided to use it to hang some of
my small art on it, I have way more to put on, and a
couple more of those wires things, so I can hang
my art around my studio.


  1. that's a lovely start to your canvas, and a brilliant use of your metal rack. I love having my favorite mail art on display.

  2. the rack i s a great idea, I have all my art hidden in folders, so this is a great idea to have it out on display as it should be!

  3. Nice texture to that canvas...and I love it when things can be recycled and useful again!
