In other news, a dealer in California has expressed interest in some larger paintings.... I'm attempting to paint those, each 22" x 22" on gessoed paper. I've made a few mistakes. The paper I first used was too rough. Additionally, I miscalculated drying time on one painting and managed to bungle that the next day by painting over tacky paint. I cringe to think of the wasted time and materials on my initial tries! Yesterday I gessoed and toned 7 more smoother sheets and I will return to that project next week. 22x22 feels HUGE compared to my daily 6x6's! But painting bigger is something I've been wanting to do for a while... so it's all good.
