When I work on my artwork, I tend to work on a smaller scale. I have tried to paint on giant canvases held up by an easel, but it’s just not comfortable. My brushstrokes feel weird. And if they feel weird, then I think they look weird. I don’t mind “weird”, in fact, I embrace it regularly. I just draw the line here. I make weird art. I just need comfy, weird art. Does that make any sense?
I have a great and exciting idea I have for my next new piece. My canvas is primed and ready for painting. I can hardly wait to cradle it in my arms like a little, baby animal holding it lovingly and making sure every little detail I add is placed where I think it should go. It looks like I hug my canvas when I paint. Most artists don’t paint like this. I like knowing that as I literally hug my canvas. It think it means I’m adding more love into my work, and I think it shows.
