Burridge Inspired

I am still wanting to play with some of the things I learned at the Burridge workshop. This is an acrylic painting on watercolor paper that has been treated with gesso. I will probably frame this like a watercolor but Burridge often mounts his paintings directly onto canvases and sells them like that--no frame. I like the approach and will experiment with it.

Wow - I spotted those colors in my sidebar and I rushed right over for a closer look... Stunning color. I like the "frameless" idea, too.

This is beautiful! You must have been his star student. What does he use to mount the paper on canvas?

If you would like more info about mounting paper on canvas, check out the artsyfartsy newsletter on the Burridge site. The Feb. 07 letter explains his process in detail.
