In the Pink, 2015, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 5"x7"
Some people have been watching Shark Week on TV. For me, it's been palm Month. I started with a large Palm portrait. You'll see in at the Art Center in September, and I'll put it up on the website soon. I've done a number of daily paintings of palms, experimenting with some different techniques, colors, and textures.
My small daily paintings are almost always done on board rather than a stretched canvas. I choose artichival, materials and usually paint on a surface of a hardboard covered with a medium-tooth canvas or linen. I often use panels from RayMar, but equally enjoy the Gessoboard surface. SourceTek has a beautiful linen on birch that's also a pleasure to paint on. It's a joy to use materials that make a job easy.
