New Canvases on their way to becoming paintings.

New Canvases on their way to becoming paintings.

Another Sunny day in the Marina and it’s time to start some new canvas. I buy just about all of my canvases at Aaron Brothers nowadays. I used to frequent the one here in the Marina but now trek over to Sepulveda/Jefferson/Sawtelle in Culver City. They have a great selection and all the supplies I need. I also like Graphaids as they have some different paints and tools.
