june



a little experiment to share : a new painting on tea stained canvas. in the process of soaking the canvas in black tea and re-stretching it over it's wood frame, the painting took on a slightly worn, but loved appearance. at least, i think so :). "june" was just listed in my shop today. not sure i'll do this again...but maybe. it was kind of fun for a change. i do love experiments!
