One of my earliest collectors was in town visiting her son, so we got together this week and gallivanted. She brought me art goodies, (thanks, KM!) including some older canvases. Estate sale, or maybe a thrift shop, or flea market; wherever they came from, they are a dream to paint on. Even after sitting for who knows how long, this one had perfect tension and a perfect stretch from the get go. The canvas was lovely to paint on, good tooth, nice fabric. It isn't a known brand, just an old no-name stretched canvas, but even then, the quality of this older canvas makes me wonder where the pride went. It was nicer to paint on than anything branded that I've bought at Michaels in forever. Today you get decent canvas only when you pay crazy top dollar. (Sigh.) Is it like that with most things today?
Tell you what, I'm looking in Goodwill and the Sal for canvas whenever I can. Thrift shops, you bet.
