Speak Grill Fabric City

Long time, no post! Things have been pretty crazy the past couple of weeks. As I said before, I am planning to move back to Boston in September, so I have been sorting through everything, getting rid of unwanted items, and selling things on eBay, etc… In between all of that, I have been doing a little painting! Check it out:

Semi-painted 40" x 30" canvas for my beaded Radio City Music Hall.

First, I painted my 30″ x 40″ canvas black, then I cut out & stitched some speaker grill fabric to the canvas. This was rather difficult to do as this kind of fabric frays easily. Somehow I managed to cut out some shapes that resemble the buildings which surround my beaded Radio City Music Hall! After I stitched them to the canvas, I painted the edges to soften them up a bit.

Then, using a new palette knife and heavy body acrylics, I painted yellow windows and doors just below the theatre. I have never used a knife before, and I will say that I am pleased with the results so far. I have a bit more to paint on the canvas before I stitch all the beadwork into place, but so far, I think it’s lookin pretty good! We’ll see what happens next!😀
