Found Treasures

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

My home and a small portion of my studio recently underwent a remodel.  As a result I was forced to do a lot of reorganizing and moving around.  As a bonus, my studio did expand a little in size!

While doing some deep cleaning and organizing I found these two canvases that have not seen the light of day in a long time.

Here they are, on my work bench, a quick glimpse...

It's been awhile since I've played with acrylics on canvas.  I painted these while I was attending college and working at the local art store here in Olympia, WA.  At the time I was doing a lot of painting.  Finding these two have really given me a bug to paint.  I want to "burn the midnight oil" like my painting teacher use to say for encouragement to put the extra time into our work.

It's not that I don't paint, I do a fair amount of hand painting on clocks.  But I'd like to paint something framable.  So I have begun to pull out the blank canvases I've stretched in the past that never got used.  Now they are front and center in my studio, stark -white, blank canvases that scream with ideas and anticipation.  Perhaps my bug will sink it's teeth in soon (or I'll find the oil)  and I will cover those worthy canvases with my brush strokes.
