studio time spent clearing off table surfaces so I could get that huge roll of watercolor paper rolled out and cut. I had bought this roll a while ago..Fabriano not my favorite and so hard to deal with! So I have several sheets of tempered glass that I put on the tables and I cleaned them and the tables and brought out the dreaded roll. It always snaps back and then tears..yikes. But this time I was ready for it. I had several heavy art books, thank you Cezanne, Uffizi, etc.! I rolled it out weighed each corner down then when I got to the other side of the table more books. Measured out 40"x48" cut it out..using 2 more books to keep the corners of newly cut piece from snapping back. I managed to cut 4 pieces, then I sprayed them with water and placed the tempered glass pieces on them to hopefully make the snappy paper lay flat. Now I hope they don't stick together when I go up tomorrow to start painting. I have a frame that has 40x47 inch opening. So I will frame one and the others will get tacked to the wall. I am going to try to recreate the same style of mixed media that I did for the library show and have continued to change up in a smaller scale with collage.
This is a big experiment!!
It was like WORK today! But the weather is fine as frog hair and my mood matched it.
After spending the last few weeks trying to get things organized/cleaned/dunged..I am truly tired tonight!
