The beauty of Black Gesso!
I've been getting ready for new work...black gesso in this case. I coat both sides of this foam core and sometimes more. I actually did this a few days ago and I've been in the studio working on the small ones. 10"x10". Just puttering around, using my square punch, gluing stuff and generally stirring the soup! So far nothing but I'm not always the best judge so I'll keep working and put things aside until I can look at them with open eyes and heart. I will also be getting out my sewing machine, as I'm feeling a desire for sewing squares.
Yesterday, Pablo and I went to the last holiday event...his cousin's home for brunch. They live in a beautiful home outside of San Francisco and all the cousins, 1st, 2ND and 3rd talked and caught up on each other's lives...great food, eggs, bagels and wonderful bakery type sweets with champagne and orange juice...whew!! It was a long ride home and Pablo has caught cold, he is sleeping in... the day is cold and wet, not raining just very wet and drippy. Two things I want to do this week, a good movie?? and a trip to Michal's craft and art supply to blow my gift card!!
