New Mixed Media Painting
I've been thinking a lot lately about the surfaces that I paint on. Lately I've been using lots of watercolor paper--It's less expensive than canvas, and I can sew on it with my sewing machine--But then there's canvas, like this, which doesn't need a mat or a frame to display it--And then there's wood--I love the way the grain can show through and how I can be very rough with it as far as sanding goes--but it can warp.
In the end I guess I love the fact that I can bring a painting on stretched canvas into the house and hang it up or prop it up, and it's done...
