"Alamosa Sunrise" ©

Walking out the back door of the Comfort Inn in Alamosa Colorado last week, this sunrise view greeted us.  One of the other travelers giggled and said "hey, that looks like a painting", I grinned back with a "OH YEAH".

Glad you're back.... Painting already, eh???

Someone told me that Gamblin ground is really expensive. Is it?? Still I imagine all the sanding and re"grounding" is less expensive than buying new canvases!

Thanks Marian, About the expense of the Gamblin Ground. All things are relative. It is probably more expensive then just a standard gesso, but the surface you get to paint on after you are done is 1000 times better. It paints just like an oil primed surface rather then an acrylic primed. It's definitely less expensive then buying new canvas and a lot more convenient for me. Plus it feels better, not adding all that paint, wood, canvas, gator board etc. to the landfill.
