New work – small scale process

In the spirit of showing the process of how I make art, I invite you to walk with me as I create these new small works.

Step 1: Creating the board.
Step 1: Creating the board.

I’ve started today creating a board, as has been used through a long tradition as a painting surface. Board is less used today with the availability of pre-stretched canvas. I enjoy working on this firmness of surface so I prepared a scale board of ash. To remain true to scale, I used ash veneer with several coats of diluted gesso, sanding each layer as it dried. This finished painting will be 3 inches wide and 2 and 1/8 inches tall. I hope you enjoy watching.
