Here are my paintings on the newly stretched but as yet unpainted canvases - I am curious to see the work on colors. I have a beautiful turquoise and a powerful red - but may use a neutral color and finish the edges with a bright frame.
Saturday I stretched about 15 canvases - put a blister on my hand! I have about 8 more stretchers to go. I am deciding now what color(s) to paint them as backgrounds to my artwork.
Flossy (background) was a great help as usual. (In the foreground, on the ironing table, are the fresh dye-paintings from Thrusday and Friday rolled in plastic to stay wet for curing).
