I love the painted edges, fab!
Thank you, Beth. It's one thing painting the edges of a tiny canvas you can hold in one hand*, in fast-drying acrylic - but painting the edges of that big box canvas (which is going to necessitate digging out my big easel from its dusty corner), in slow drying oils, will be a challenge! I do like a challenge, mind.*I don't use an easel at all when I'm painting the 7x7's.
Tell me what you think!
