When I see a blank canvas, my brain gets overwhelmed with possibilities, and I freeze. This was my dilemma until I discovered plaster as a color substrate over the canvas. All of a sudden, the texture started to speak to me and to influence the shapes and designs that emerged onto the canvas. The infinite became defined as the flat canvas now had a sculptural composition. Painting became much more doable and less threatening. Plaster is an extremely porous medium, so to accomplish definition, I use layers of thin washes of acrylic paint, and allow the plaster texture to help define the stronger color.
For the most part, Acrylics are sized 18”x24”
