WORKING ON THE LAST PIECE FOR THE ELEMENTS SHOW AT GOOSE CREEK !!

 
Hey Friends,  Thought it might be of interest for you to see the beginning of this last piece for the ELEMENTS show.  This will be a dyptch.  This is the stained Masa Paper drying in the parched grass.

 
And this shot shows you what gelato containers are good for when empty! Gesso is easier to deal with in smaller jars.  The cradled panels had to have gesso barriers before gluing the Masa down.

 
This is the beginning of adding bird shapes.  Very loose and splashy.

 
I have a water soluable graphite pencil that I love and it proved useful on this wet paper.
I had forgotten how much I love to work on Masa.  I must use it more often. 
It should be easier to deal with on hardboard versus stretched canvas, the gluing stage I mean.
 
I will do the gluing in the morning so we shall see.
 
Have a wonderful and peaceful Sunday.
 
Happy Trails
