HollyDeanArtist: Often Medieval in Mood: Shed Med[ieval].

Shed Med[ieval].

Earlier in the week, I spent an afternoon in the studio prepping gallery canvases - painting the edges black. My newest works are created on watercolour paper or illustration board [since my workshop with Karen Rosasco -  but that's another blog] and they will be mounted on these canvases.

prepped canvases in the studio.

After painting the edges, the canvases were stowed in Shed Med [our "Medieval" shed], ready to grab as I finish a new piece. As you can see, I have a LARGE supply of 14"x18" canvases, and a fair number of 10"x10" and 6"x6".

It feels good to be using the materials I have on hand. The best part, though, is that I am building a body of work! Look for new pieces featured here on my blog, on Facebook and on my website. Two new paintings make their debut this week.
