How is it that I think I have time to keep up a blog when all I do is eat, sleep and paint?
This might be an exercise in futility....I think I have started 3 or 4 blogs in the past, and each one has shriveled up and died from lack of time (interest?) on my part.
Well let's give it a go.
Since the beginning of December, I have been painting tiny (to me) little 8 x 10" acrylic studies.
The initial idea came to me because when I was stretching my 24 x 24" canvases, I had a 14" selvage of left-over canvas that I "saved" thinking I would use it sometime.
After stretching a few canvases on 8 x 10 stretchers, I decided to save space and time by painting on a flat 12 x 14" canvas, pinned to a board, with the 8 x 10" area taped off and sealed with acrylic medium.
You can see in the photo below how much space I have saved, since I have painted around 60 flat paintings.
