I played with the surface a little before painting this piece. I like the feeling of linen (because it's finer than canvas) but it's still a little too porous for my liking. I prepped this one by applying a pretty thick coat of gesso with a palette knife. I really liked the result, maybe I'll try it with some old canvases I have lying around.
I'm not usually a fan of fog, but since we had such a beautiful sunny summer these last couple days of clouds and rain are a welcome autumn change :) It's making me feel like we actually have seasons! It also makes me want to eat candy corn...
So this is new and exciting, I'm on a book cover! I wish we still had a bookstore around so I could go look at it, but sadly they all have closed. Easiest job I've ever had, I would not complain at all about doing more of these :)
