This was one of my first canvases that I made from scratch; by cutting knotty pine to size and using wood glue and staples to secure the rectangular shape. I don’t think i had discovered gesso yet, so I made a mixture of white acrylic paint, Elmer’s glue, and wood glue to prime the cotton material for painting.
As a sewing aficionado, I have a rather large collection of fabric that I keep in my studio. It has resulted in a great segway into stretched canvas creation for my paintings. (You can bet your pants that I will explain more about that in a future post)
This is an experimental design of acrylic on canvas that I completed a few weeks ago. I call it: “Into the Bubble-verse”. My idea was to illustrate a universe of blue bubbles; however, without knowing that they are bubbles, an observer could draw other observations. I’m actually inspired to paint another similar piece that connects more abstractly to the idea of a bubble universe. (*giggles* I hope you can tell how much I enjoy this new hobby).
Alas I have gifted this piece to my dear brother for his birthday, after he mentioned how much he liked it.
