In anticipation of the writers conference this weekend, (See this page if you’re interested) I’ve created yet another project for myself. Since I loved how the first canvas backdrop I painted back in March turned out, I am painting another one. I have intended to anyway, but life and time don’t intersect until I force them to. (sorry writers, I know, i shouldn’t end a sentence that way)

The Miller Paint store had a closeout on the Ralph Lauren Matte base paint, only for the dark tint colors, which is great, dark backdrops are what I wanted.  This paint I’m using today is a dusky grey violet base, I think it is making a great base for the canvas. I’ve not yet decided what other colors to blend in, I’ll have to let that come to me while I vacuum.

The canvas is just the canvas drop cloth from Home Depot, 9×6.

I can hardly wait to try it out. Who will be the first to have a sitting in front of this lovely?
