OK, all kidding aside....   :2funny:  ....no really. Put a hold on the jocularity for a minute.   ;D  Well, at least try then.

There was a bit about how to repair cut, ripped, torn canvas on here somewhere. I just can't seem to remember where (no surprise there)   :crazy2:  It has been about 2 years since I saw it. I'm sure one of the Clark boys would know where to find it. OK, all done. Back to normal.   :yippee:

Cheers, Val

Just had a flash....I think you glued a piece of canvas on the back side, and gessoed the front side.....   ???

Hey!  I just remembered!  Dennis has a video somewhere on how to repair a torn canvas!   :gl:

Rita, Val, Lillian...

I know it's possible...I saw that video a bit back myself and looked for it but with no success...I decided to save it as a practice canvas as well as a template for this year's jack-o-lantern.  Thank you for all your helpful suggestions... :2funny:  I did move ahead with a second canvas and am almost at painting the lady on her way to a weight watchers' meeting...since I'm not about to attempt carving her up with my new weapon, she's just going to have to lose a few pounds!

lol ... you're making the poor thing walk through a dodgy part of town in the torrential rain to attend a weight watchers meeting ... that's just cruel  :2funny:

I think it was in the Q and A video that Nolan showed us how to use a knife, you need to make sure that the canvas is on something solid (I think he used a few books) before you start to cut out the masking.

Mary!   :2funny:

 :thankyou: Nolan.  I will bookmark this.  It could happen to me!  :D

 :2funny:  I know, huh, Lillian?  Aren't you glad I went into psych instead of surgery?   :2funny:

Mary, I know I am.  How many times have I worn a bandaid after a slip with a kitchen knife?   :confused:

Thank goodness I no longer have to give a hypodermic.  My manual dexterity is deteriorating!   :2funny:

Ok, well, here it is and I could write an entire novel on this one.  It was one disaster after another...this was the one that started all the exacto knife issues...within each step there is a horror show...Nolan - you will have to invest an entire year just digesting all the mistakes here so I say leave as is and we'll just move right along to the next one...LOL!  I changed the grafitti (my son's band logo and my area code...LOL...BAD IDEA!) which was another step in the wrong direction and THEN, had painted in the reflections of the numbers and THEN went back another day to put them in with an entirely different color!  You'll see the attempt to fix that one for which there was none!  And the lady?  Well, she just kept putting on more and more weight which all had to do with the first cover I had cut out and slashed through the first canvas...whatever made me think I could put THAT one in place of starting over I'll never know but lesson learned!  I am posting for humor alone because rain is not my friend...I might have been better off going OUT in the rain to paint this one!  But now I'm caught up with oils IF you want to say that!  Only 5 watercolors to go!   :2funny:

Mary!  I love it!   :smitten: 

The journey with you to this end has been great fun. 

Hmmm, crashing glass tables, canvas slashing...I'm afraid what may come next!  Be careful girl! 

I love your cheery attitude and sense of humour.  It always shines through no matter what.   :flowers:

Now I'm off to take a walk through your gallery.  You've come a long way in just 6 months!   :yippee:

 :2funny: :2funny: Lillian!  It IS scary to think of what may come next!  I'm so happy you're enjoying the journey...LOL...I always have to frame things in humor...I've always believed laughter is the saving grace but I really WOULD like a little less "adventure" in my program...LOL  Thank you so much re the painting but you know what the best part of the 6 months has been?  Having you and our little family in my life!    :1hug:

I enjoyed the walk through your gallery.  You've been a very, very busy girl!  I love what I see there!   :flowers:

 :wave:  Hi Mary, I like your rainy, drippy painting. I enjoy the lights and darks along with the bright colours of her umbrella.   :clap:
I think it was a great idea to personalize the grafitti...just be glad you didn't include the rest of your phne number!   :smiley6600:    :smiley6600:    :smiley6600:    :smiley6600:
Cheers, Val
