2011 FESTIVAL BANNER BEGINS
This year I asked a beautiful friend to model for me and be my banner subject. The painted area of the banner is 24" x 35" and begins with a heavy coat of gesso. The canvas has to be carefully stretched since it is 100% cotton and likes to shrink when wet.
Stay tuned to see this project develop. I am excited that my daughters are also painting banners this year and I will post some of their work, too.
