I am a thrift store shopper.
Always have been.
I have been selling antiques and collectibles for years - so now when I am shopping - I simply look for paint and brushes and canvas in addition to all the other stuff I look for...
I found this BIG 4 foot square canvas with a bonus!
It had a great texture already on it.
I did google Thomas Lee and it was as I suspected.
A lousy 1970's furniture store art painting.
So no qualms for me to paint it over.
Pigeon eradication begins.
I never plan ahead what I am going to do.
I just start painting.
I found a little tube of ORANGE acrylic paint at Goodwill yesterday and put it to use here.
Added a little of this and a little of that...
and a little of that and a little of this....until "Requiem for Two Pigeons" was completed.
A friend gave me a huge roll of canvas.
It turns out it is not canvas.
It is a vinyl wall covering.
I don't care.
I will paint on about anything...
I bought this little table at Goodwill and then painted a piece of that vinyl and put about 5 coats of poly-acrylic sealer on it and now all I have left to do is glue it down.
These were a challenge to paint as I had that left-brain right-brain quarrel going on.
"These are pants."
"No. This is just a funny shaped canvas."
Oh the battle raged on....
I am not certain these are done yet - but wanted to hang them up ponder them.
