Ok I get a little excited about a fresh canvas...I love the creamy color, the thick rough texture, the sound it makes as my brush bounces along the surface. I found these old paintings I did in college and some folds of unused canvas in a bag that I'd been storing in some box somewhere in the abyss that is our basement. Let's just say, these old canvases needed a new life. So, I pulled the old off the frame and stretch and primed some new. Not that I'm an oil painter or anything. Because I'm really not. But sometimes I think I just need an outlet, like a great big canvas and a set of huge brushes to loosen me up a bit. I tend to get transfixed on the smallest details of my tiny watercolor paintings that doing something big and different sounds scary in a fun way.
So, I've decided to break out the oils and play. I have only a vague direction and a few simple ideas. For now, let's just call this a warm-up exercise.
