The four eight by eight panels are leaning against the wall looking quite inviting. This morning I did some fix-it work with Jason, liberally applying glue between the frames and the plywood to make certain that there was no potential for looseness in them, so now they’re very solid and simply need canvas stretched over them. Although I’m looking forward to getting these pieces started, I do need to pay attention to my priorities and continue with the cards project, completing these first four, then taking on other projects alongside the cards as I produce the complete deck of major trumps one by one.
My three panels for the Indian lady piece have turned out nicely, so I will need to gesso them and find an appropriate model. I have shot pictures for this before, but didn’t like the results, which really didn’t look like the lady in the dream. Somewhere I’ll find the perfect model.
