A romance that can't be rushed


Large canvases are a new addiction for me. At first I was intimidated by them, now I want to do larger and larger canvases! This one is 24" x 36". I've washed it in custom-mixed raspberry paint. Now it will sit. For how long, I don't know. The color will be contemplated, until it tells me what it wants. The key is trust the process. Contemplation of the pure potentiality of a canvas is a marvelous meditation. For now I have it hanging on the wall.
This is a good way to experiment with color, by painting canvases instead of the walls. The color can be changed easily on a whim.

I really liked this post. Your love for canvas is similar to mine for fabrics. I cover canvas boards with it and let the colours and patterns tickle my imagination :)

I really love your blog. It puts me on a lift each time I read it. I love all of the beautiful pics and you have inspired me to try my hand at painting. Any suggestions for a beginner? I love whta you did with the large canvas of rasberry. Where could i buy a large canvas like that and some beginner oil paints?
