Blank Canvas

January 9, 2015

From where I sit, a winter storm rages.  Waves are silenced by a thickening sheet of ice bringing great expectations for the ice fisher people.  I move to my studio with my wave memories and anticipation of images to come.


Next step #Blank Canvas:  For small pieces like this one I choose 160 lb hot pressed watercolor paper (smooth surface).  I like the way the paint flows for waves. Large pieces of this paper tear easily into 5 x 5 inch squares. Watercolor and acrylic paints, mixing surfaces, fresh water in containers, brushes and brain are all ready.

So after building the memories and preparing the surface #Blank Canvas is ready to receive, but hold on …
