Climate Catastrophe

It is February so this is my monthly posting.  I could write reams about climate change but will resisit that temptation. Most of us know the facts by now and some of us may even agree with Greta Thunberg that we should be scared!

Instead, I will describe something else. I have recently found good canvases with paintings on them in charity shops. It all started with the Christmas challenge (see my last post) which alerted me to a cheap way of finding painting ‘supports.’ The painting here is done on hardboard, another source from a charity shop. Usually if you find a framed picture there will be hardboard on the back. I take this out and prime it with Gesso and hey presto there is your support for a new painting. It has the aditional advantage that you can return the painting to the original frame when it is finished!

All this for £1 (minus cost of paints of course).

This picture is 45 x 38 cms.

  1. I’ll have to examine these completed old painitngs found in charity shops in the future. When I painted over a recent hardboard one in acrylics the paint is easily rubbed off with a damp cloth. I may be able to fix it if I varnish it. (?)
