A client wanted a cow painting, for licensing purposes. I usually do daily painting of still life or landscape, but I have to admit I enjoyed both the horse, they originally chose, and this cow painting.
I painted on Senso linen canvas. I had a pad of the linen around for several years but didn't really know what to do with it. I found it had a different texture than the cotton canvas I usually paint on, but once I got into the painting, it was fine.
My next problem was what to do with this unstretched painting. After surveying several friends, I mounted it on a cradled wood panel. I was told the perfect glue to use is YES GLUE
available at craft stores. I had some in my stash and I have to say it worked like a charm. Then I trimmed the edges with a exacto knife and it turned out perfectly. Now I can use the rest of my Senso linen canvas with no fear!
So, today I stretched my limits, both with the Senso canvas and the cow painting, and luckily both worked out for me!
This is a re-post, and the cow has been sold. However, if you are interested, giclee prints are available on canvas and wood planks, in the size of your choice. Contact me for pricing.
