Prepping my Canvas

My Process

In 2009, I stumbled upon an idea to start with a base of newspaper under my paintings.  Read more about how that happened here

 

The video shows a time-lapse of how I apply the newspaper to the canvas. 

 

This particular piece is a commissioned painting in which the owners provided some very very old and crumbly paper to use under their piece.  My process allows for me to use any type of paper, old or new.
