A Smooth Beginning

There is always something about the process of art which feeds me.

I just really love preparing icon boards. The mixing of the rabbit skin glue with the marble dust, and applying layer after layer of the gesso is just plain fun.

I know I can buy already prepared boards, and believe me I do from time to time, but I always like the ones I have prepared the best.
Now the hand sanding has been always time consuming, and let me know that I was a long way from perfection in this skill set.

Recently my husband ordered me a great electric sander, which brought me into this century
I will admit it is truly better to be covered in a white dusting for three hours, instead of for three days, and well, ..the results are awesome.
