What I'm Working On Now

I'm working on some new ways to work and display my work on paper.  I've mounted some heavy duty Arches cream paper on cradled wood panels.  I used archival glue and a brayer to apply the paper and get all the air out from underneath it.  What a soothing process.  And I love the way that they look.  I almost don't want to paint on them!

I'm working on these smaller ones (6x6" and soon to come 10x10") for the December 2nd ArtWalk Gardiner. The larger ones are 8x10" for the 8x10x80 show at the Harlow Gallery.

Today I'm going to paint on them and see what comes to light.  Working on some utilitarian items, too...next post!  :)

    What's your formula for glue? I collected one earlier this summer (gotta check my notes to see what it was), but mounting paper onto the frame is an awesome idea! Sure beats framing costs!
