A Fool And His Money

This is one of only a few  paintings I've done on canvas. It is mounted on board. I just never really got a feel for canvas, even with this painting I gesso the canvas many times to take some of the tooth out of the canvas. I viewed painting  money on canvas as a real challenge and should be attempted, after all John Haberle did his trompe l'oiel painting of money on canvas. It didnt seem to effect his work much!
I just dont see the advantage of canvas over board. I'd really like to get some comments about the advantages of canvas. Perhaps I can be persuaded to try it again. After all art is a journey and maybe canvas should be apart of it.

  1. This is brilliantly executed. I really dig Tromp L'oeil.
