well ~ I've decided to bail on stretched canvas for the moment and work directly on flat canvas. The Chameleon Salon did pick one of my flatties for this weeks show (one of seven pieces ~ my first salon after 7 years of my eye on the prize!) ~
So, i was draggin my self about with the new 'parrotfish' piece with my handy 16 x 20 stretcher bars ready, and this morning, decided to see how a gessoed piece of canvas will handle it.
