For over a week I've been looking at this unfinished bag,
sitting across the room, waiting.
But, I also kinda like the unfinished look,
and it would be easy to go too far?
Originally a raw canvas Rigger bag from Harbor Freight.
Better examples by Eastside members in blog #2087 (here).
I got a message today from Lynn in Colorado saying ...
"Hi Jacki, I enjoyed the post of the Eastside group
canvas bag creation. So much in fact I purchased a
couple to do with my grandson tomorrow.
It's a snow day! He loves to make patterns.
I gessoed the bag in preparation.
I just thought you would enjoy knowing that
your inspiration has yet again born fruit
I was thinking we could use pens and permanent markers
with thinned acrylics. What do you think?
Have you finished yours? Love to you, Lynn"
I responded: "Terrific! Yes that should work well.
I hope you’ll send pictures? Mine still looks the same,
which I kinda like, but plan to add some color,
just afraid of over working it? I will share when I get gutsy?
Have fun on snow day!"
Tonight while listening/watching/painting the final episode of ...
Inspired by Lynn's message, I started.
Initially thinking I might just add a few dabs ...
The raw canvas really soaks up a lot of acrylics.
Almost done, but I will add some ink outlining ...
I will seal is with a clear acrylic spray, tomorrow.
Now 12:58 AM, this silly blog usually posts at 12:03AM.
A smile for Friday ...
