My first time painting on canvas! I was invited to participate in an art exchange by my good friend and fabulous mixed media artist Renee Troy. Renee also inspired me to have a go at using a canvas. Of course, I had no idea what I was doing, but I took out my limited collection of acrylic paints and went for it. I tried doing a layering technique that I had seen Jackie Sullivan do in a demo she did for the Society for Calligraphy. I did multiple layers using matte medium or a fixative spray in between, then finished it off with the final quote in calligraphy. So much fun!
