That Time of Year

It's That Time of Year 10X10 Acrylic on Gessoed Paper $100

It's that time of year when we need to look ahead to the coming season and

new year and new beginnings. I will soon start to do a series of these trees.

They make great gift and are fun to do.

Love this! I hope to learn something from you to do my own trees this year. You use gesso first on the paper.. is there a reason? I have just plowed in and painted.. but not with very good results. Thank you for your time xox

I put gesso on the paper first and let it dry so that the paint doesn't get absorbed into the paper. It goes dull if the paper isn't gessoed first.
