So I was there at De Serres, looking for the 12 x 16″ acrylic paper I like to use for my “sketches” a couple of weeks ago, but the store was fresh out. I asked a sales lady what the story was and after having looked remarked that yes, we were apparently out of stock. She suggested that I try the small sheets of canvas, with 10 per pad at the same size (12 x 16″) and so I bought the one pad thinking I’d give them a try.
Good news is that I’m really liking the painting on canvas… and the sheets do not curl in the slightest, meaning that when I go to tape them up on the wall in my photo studio they lay snug against the wall.
So I’m going to paint on small canvas, I think, from now on.
Wow, wow, wow… lots of snow in Ottawa. Here’s a shot I took of our back yard, where the gate is hardly recognizable.
I ran out of acrylic paper for my sketches recently and so bought a pad of 12 x 16″ canvas, which works really well for me. It sits totally flat on a table, easy to mount on board, easy to frame or ship. So I might continue working with them from now on.
Some concepts I’m working on for a series of abstract commissions…
Things 5, 12 x 16″ acrylic on canvas
Things 3, 12 x 16″ acrylic on canvas
Just getting the site fixed so I can show the work available… seems to be a problem and my provider is working to get it fixed!
Here’s one of my latest, “Ready to go”, 12 x 16″ on paper.
