Canvas blocksBack in the old, old, OLD days, artists would paint on wooden panels, which were meticulously prepared and primed for the oil paint masterpieces they would hold. From the 16th Century onwards, Italian artists lead the change to using canvas as the support medium of choice.

Linen canvas is a popular (more expensive) medium for professionals using oil paints, and cotton duck canvas is widely used for acrylics.

Many professional artists still choose to prepare their own canvas, in the traditional manner. For the rest of us there is a wide range of pre-stretched, pre-primed canvases available for ready and relatively inexpensive purchase.

I am extremely grateful to the entrepreneurs who decided to supply ready-to-rock canvases to the mass market. My wallet, my time and my energy thank you!

On Day Six of the new year, what are YOU grateful for today?!
