I’m preparing canvases for my upcoming show…

It’s Sunday and I’m back to talk more about preparing for my show that is coming this summer! What I like to do in the beginning is gather all the shapes and sizes I want to paint on. I love having a variety!

When using canvas, I temporarily wrap and staple it to panels. This way, I can work into the canvas and scrape it like I would if working on a panel.

Check this out…

The paintings will all be in acrylic on canvas. I hope you are enjoying the behind-the-scenes look into the early stages of my show preparations! When you are preparing for a show, what helps you envision your collection? Let me know in the comments.
