My apologies for neglecting my blog reading. I’ve been away for the summer visiting family back home in Oregon and Washington. I look forward to catching up with everyone soon.
Earlier this month I was lucky enough to attend a painting workshop run by one of my favorite artists Carol Marine.
Carol uses Ampersand Gessobord for her painting surface. I gave it a try and I like it much better than the canvas panel I was using before. So now I’m using some my old leftover canvas panels as slats for the wet canvas carrier that my uncle made for me.
For the workshop I needed something that I could carry panels of various sizes without breaking the bank. My uncle re-purposed an unused bookshelf that he picked up at a garage sale and created these nifty carriers. I slid some 9×12 canvas panels between them to act as shelves.
These work great and are able to hold anything 9 x 12 or smaller.I ended up using the top as a staging area for still life set ups. By stacking/unstacking them I was able to raise or lower my point of view.
They were great to have on hand and I’m sad to leave them behind in Oregon. Thank you Uncle Scott!
Tomorrow we get on a plane back to China!
