Gesso

IMG_9795We’ve had a very productive morning. Jason came over to help me with the big panels, and laid down a couple of coats of gesso onto the panel I stretched yesterday. I carried on with canvas and finished getting it onto the second piece, and used some wood putty to fill a crack down the centre of the third and fourth panel where the wood meets. We’ll gesso one of the panels with black in preparation for the angel of death, helping the darks to be really deep and rich, while the lights will pop out from the shadows.

This afternoon I’m heading over to the Brand library in Glendale with Brian to shoot pictures of the exhibit for my archives. It’s incredibly important to make a record of everything for use later in promoting the work to curators in other establishments. 

This Saturday at 4.00 pm there’s going to be a closing reception at the Hillcrest Center in Thousand Oaks to celebrate the exhibit that’s been in there for a month. I’m looking forward to it.
