I was cleaning up some things in my studio when I found a stack of framed prints I bought for cheap somewhere. I didn't buy them for the prints, of course, I bought them for the frames and glass. I was going to empty them, paint to size, and use them for my watercolours.
Well, now that I don't paint on paper that's no longer really applicable. But then I thought COOL...Absorbent Ground can be painted on anything (theoretically) so I can paint it on top of the glass and then paint my paintings on top of that.
About three seconds later I thought UNCOOL....imagine someone trying to hang their painting, dropping it, and smashing their artwork to smithereens. Who wants to pay hundreds of dollars for splintered glass?
I suppose I can easily paint on wood and snap the wood into the back of the frames.
But then again I'm loving the boxed frames I've been doing.
I guess I'll just save the frames for another rainy day.
