DAILY PAINTING: So far this week I've been doing the less fun and more mundane aspects of painting: stretcher bars and canvas. But at last today I got to begin to do the fun stuff. Here you see that I've created some really heavy texture, which is something I've wanted to try for a while. This is such heavy texture that it becomes sculptural. What a chore it was to brush the gesso into all those nooks and crannies, but the paintings should be well worth it!
