5x5" mixed media on gallery wrap canvas
ON HOLD FOR A SHOW
This sunflower is painted over a good layer of flexible molding paste. I love the texture it brings, but there was a practical reason I did this. I have been having trouble with stretched canvas buckling a bit at the corners. It probably doesn't bother anyone because it is so slight...but I hate it!...SO, I put a layer of paste over it and voila it takes the problem away!...I only wish I'd thought of it earlier.
I buy my canvas mostly at Meiningers ( a huge, prestigious art store)...so, I think on my next visit I'm going to have a chat with them about their certain brands of canvas! THERE, I've gotten this off my chest!
I tried taking this pic in several lights and you can't really see the purplish hue that is the background...it comes out mostly blue...sorry...still not the grand photographer!
This will be number 2 to be entered in a miniature show at the Foothills Art Center in Golden, Colorado this September....My next you ask??...a Pinion Pine Cone...:)
