IN THE STUDIO - PREPARING MY CANVASES

5/8/21 (Llano Quemado, N.M.) - A Toned Ground. Preparing to Paint. Mix in aluminum can (not plastic!) - I use Jerry's Gesso (Artarama), acrylic Payne's Grey and water - not too thck and not to thin.  It usually takes two coats for a good ground. I like a medium grey.  Apply second coat only after the first is completely dry.  A good start today!!!!

Have been saving this Langston Hughes poem "The Dreamkeeper" for many years - time to share these beautiful words....
 
Bring me all of your dreams you dreamer
Bring me all of your heart melodies
That I may write them down
In a blue-cloud cloth
Away from the too tough fingers
of the world.
