Work in Progress
I went to my art class on Tuesday and Wednesday, so I thought I'd give you a peek at what I've been working on. It's a 16 X 20 inch canvas, and I've spent a lot of time just covering up the canvas! Most of it is still underpainting, but I started to develop this section a little more yesterday. I hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew.
I scored a bargain at Michael's today. I found some 8 inch x 8 inch black wood frames for $8.00 each! They have glass and a back panel with little clasps. When I remove the glass, my canvas panels fit perfectly, and the back panel holds everything in place. I really like the 8 inch square size, so I'm going back and buy up a bunch of these frames. If anyone is interested, this is what the frames look like. Sorry about the glare.
Also today, I saw that Carol Marine will have a show here in San Antonio from January 13th through the 31st at the Nueva Street Gallery. There will be a champagne reception the evening of the 13th. I'm excited, and I'm planning to attend. I follow Carol's blog, but I'm eager to see her works in person!
