Big canvas part 2

It took me 2 separate easel purchases to realize, I don't NEED an easel :)
I should say 2 purchases AND 2 returns and the less said about easels, the better!

Ephemera on canvas

Ephemera added with heavy gel medium and a palette knife.  Been saving these ticket stubs and train tickets for quite a while so I am glad to be able to use them.

I like how the dark print faded on this newer ticket.  It's all about texture and layers at this stage.


added photos 

Circles of older photos were added for more visual interest.  


me at 18

Once the glue dries, I'll be adding another layer of gesso and THEN colors and more texture.  So far I like how this is developing, minus easel stomping time!

Peace out!
