The life of any artist consists of many work related activites that are not very compelling to blog about... for example,
Above ,you see one of the steps in the the preparation for a canvas floorcloth.
Heavy canvas (heavier than that used for a regular painting) is stretched, in this case, since it will fit, on a table. It is easier in many ways to paint on the table, I can use more liquidy paint when I feel like it, without worrying about dripping....large floorcloths are stapled and stretched on a wall, and that makes them also easier to see, and reach! Everything has its good points.
The final coat for the back is a colour I feel will be keeping with the finished work, which will be on the other side.
I turn the whole thing over, staple it firmly to the table and begin again the priming process on what will be the front of the floorcloth.
After a few coats, I begin my art work.
