This painting is huge, it’s been a struggle to work with because my work table isn’t big enough to support the whole canvas. I want to start doing quite a few oversize paintings so I decided to figure out an alternative. I took my canvas outside and nailed it to the shed in the side yard. The downside to this is the effort involved in lugging everything out, plus it rained while I was out there. Luckily the painting was protected by the roof of the shed but I got soaked. I know I need to find an alternative to this procedure because it won’t work in the winter. I need a large wall and floor surface that can withstand paint splatters, drips and stains. My dream you ask, well that would be to open up the attic and refinish it to accommodate only a studio. Here’s a few pictures of attic art studios that have me drooling.
As for the painting itself, well I’m not quite finished with it, there are still some areas I want to work on. When it’s finished it will be for sale exclusively here.
