I whipped out some interior fabric options, rotary cutter, cutting board, and the painting itself and I just started measuring and cutting. My fear were the handles. I felt if I used the interior fabric, it would take away from the painting. The neutral fabrics I have well the fibers did not match up in my opinion. So I sat on the floor and thought, what do I do? As I looked around my sewing area, what do I see but another rolled canvas that I have been using as my picture backdrops. LIGHTBULB!
Cut up 2 handles from that canvas and then I went to work. I'm so excited with how this turned out. It is 15 1/2" wide, 16 1/2" high, 4" deep and the handle drop is 8". The canvas is heavy duty 15oz. triple treated and painted with acrylics. It's such a fun piece.
I'm sending it back to Massachusetts for possible gallery exposure and maybe we'll have a Mom and Daughter art boutique soon! Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming!!
