Here I am yesterday (in my "outdoor studio") with my gesso-ing project. I gessoed a 36"x36" canvas for my newest project along with a stack of smaller canvas panels. It took me hours, but I like doing tasks like this almost as well as painting paintings (especially when it is not raining...and I said almost).
This is a painting I touched up today. I made some corrections to the window and the lamp. I like this painting because it reminds me of an English Mystery (Colonel Mustard...in the Library....with the lead pipe). It didn't start out to be that way, but it took on that life of it's own somehow.
Painting: Celeste Bergin, Library, oil on 9 x 12 canvas panel
