  • Re: Newbie at canvas painting.

    Hi there! Good for you to start exploring painting--it's so much fun! I recommend to my beginning art students to go with a stretched canvas that is already gessoed. Keep it simple and don't worry about stretching and prepping your own canvas. That's valuable if you're working very large...

  • Can I revive my love of painting and drawing?

    I have posted a charcoal drawing that I did of my husband and son some 20 years ago. Besides the expense I have lost my drive to get back into producing more pieces. I do, however, still have the desire. I wonder if somebody out there has had a similar problem? How can I "rekindle"? Feel free...
