Preparing the Canvas for a Masterpiece

Debbie The Heart Artist Opening up Jerry's Artarama art supplies.JPGI love this process, some may consider it grunt work, but what I love about it mostly is that it is my way of taking over the canvas and becoming one with it. Yay maybe this sounds like hippy talk, but look at it this way, I AM AN ARTIST, taking over the canvas as my own energy is a primary step in creating the positive energy work that I do.
Using Jerry’s Artarama “World’s Greatest Gesso” OMG I LOVE IT!
I love the way it feels, I love the constancy of it.
You see I sand and gesso my canvas about 3 to four times. It pretty much takes a day or two to get it done. I like a very soft feel for my canvases when I am painting the delicacy of the flowers. So it is important to me that the gesso does it job. Well This one DOES!I have now used it on 30 canvases and it is THE BEST ! It is the only one I will use!
Thank you Jerry’s Artarma!
