priming and prepping

I've been priming some wood panels and cardboard sheets this morning with gesso and house paint. Getting ready for a new batch of work.

I was pretty happy with the last few  pieces I did with paint, so I'm going to tackle some more. It's making me draw a bit differently, and choose subjects differently as well. It also allows me to make larger pieces, which is something I've been shooting for.

(That's our 100-year-old dining room table, which used to be my great-grandfather's. I need to be really careful!)
