Stretching, stapling and gessoing the mother of all canvases!

I spent my evenings last week stretching and stapling a 48" x 96" canvas for my painting Rhododendron Explosion, and now I'm working on the gessoing. It's the mother of all canvases--at least for me!

ha, you yearn the city and I yearn for the small town, away from all this hustle and bustle.
But if you ever decide to come to NYC, I recommend Chelsea Galleries. All the good stuff isn't just in the large museums.

Look forward to seeing what you'll be painting on that mother of all canvases. You're so brave!
