Here you can see the edge of this large Koi painting… if you look closely you may find there are two small holes… Ouch! yes this hurts.. The painting fell and when it fell I had just tightened the canvas so it was PERFECTLY TIGHT… and of course as with” Murphy’s Law” it fell down on two pointy bottles which punctured the canvas. I’ve made a repair by gluing a new piece of canvas onto the back side and will now paint the front so there isn’t an obvious rip. Geeze… What r ya gonna do? The customer was notified of this mishap and I’m breathing a tiny sigh of relief as he still wants the painting and doesn’t think there wil be a problem with the painting once I’ve painted over the patch. Whew… still bugs me … I’ll get over it. Of course… I need to secure these canvases even when I’m not painting them. At the time I had just leaned it up and was stepping back to take a look at it to see if all the wrinkles were gone. OK OK I get it… live and learn. Oh yeah thats my studio kitty, ”Chubbs”.
