Traveling with your artwork, can make pieces vulnerable to getting damaged. When I came back home from my last show, I realized one piece had leaned into another, causing the canvas to stretch. This can also happen if your artwork isn't stored properly.
I came up with an idea to cut the canvas off of the stretcher, and paste it on to a wood board I had previously custom cut myself. I took the idea one step further and decided to "create" a little.
Here's the work from beginning to end.
This was a good experiment and I didn't have to throw away the painting. I have to put a few finishing touches on the wood board and then I'll be satisfied with the end result...
Good luck and keep on painting
