stretching your own canvas

DAILY PAINTING: My goodness, I'm exhausted! Yesterday, I built the 3 stretcher frames you see here (16" x 28"). What a job that was! The pieces fit together so tightly, and the glue is drying every minute, and hammering the corners square and fitting them into clamps--wow!

I prefer to stretch unprimed canvas, so today's job was to apply 2 coats of gesso, and then, when that was dry--with my last ounce of strength--I threw down some acrylic in a watercolor effect, as you see.
