Why I love to make art canvas by hand

Spring is here!

I started rummaging through the closets and found these two pieces from early 2015.

They were made at a time when I was just starting out. Self expression on canvas (that I had made from scratch).

The primary goal was not to create art per se. The primary goal of making art was to see how many variations of colour experimentation I could do; the trick was that by making the canvas from scratch I would save oodles of cash!

“The average cost of buying canvas from retailers like Curry’s, DeSerres, or Michael’s Craft Store is anywhere from $20-$70 per canvas depending on the size. I was able to make sizes as large as 96 inches x 48 inches for less than $30.”

In earlier posts I have sung the praises of making art canvas.

I have even done tutorial videos on Youtube that you can find {here} and {here}.
