Easel Happenings

photograph of today's progress at the easel

The first paper-doll-chain painting sat on the floor in front of me while I worked on this new one. They may hang together someday, somewhere - so I wanted to paint the second one in reponse to the first.

Also, in the photograph, you can see the two lateral threads I used to keep the dolls from spinning. I usually only need one, and a bit of tape, but this model was so wispy it took two. The dolls are sandwiched between them. The heating vent, out of the photo and above the easel, was kept closed to keep the air currents from bouncing the dolls around. The light source (a floor lamp) is behind the wet canvas - you can see its base peeking around.
