The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust

Boarded Up and Ready to Paint

After a very busy adoption day yesterday (I still have Golden Retriever hair in my eyelashes, but I'm not complaining), I spent the afternoon cutting up some hardboard.  I got a couple of 11x14s, a 9x12, some 6x8s, some 8x10s, and a pile of 6x6s. This week's project will be to seal them with Golden GAC 100 on all sides, then add multiple layers of gesso. On the final layer, I add some Liquitex clear gesso to the mix, to add a bit of sanded surface.  Call me crazy, but even this part of painting is fun!
