I love painting on a big canvas. So much so, I've even considered painting solely BIG. I LOVE the movement and texture associated with larger sweeping brush strokes - physically moving with the painting. However, until I firm up a larger studio space... it's one big painting at a time. And the one right now? Well, it's almost 8 feet long by 2 1/2 feet tall. And I'm itching to go bigger! I just put the final touches on today, though, and am looking forward to picking up more canvas from Artisan Custom Canvas (a GREAT local custom canvas builder) at the end of the month so that I can start my next big (but not quite as big) commission.
In the meantime - come watch me paint a 30 x 40 inch canvas at the Fresh Paint show in Everett, WA this weekend! It's a great ARTIST IN ACTION show where you can watch glass-blowing, encaustic painting, metalsmithing, and more!
