Stretched the canvas late last night, then soaked in a hot bath (I need a young, strong-backed assistant). Looking at it this morning, it is off-square by an inch, misread a mark while stretching it. Back on the floor.... the faster it gets restretched, the faster I get to the fun parts. Questioning whether I need to order stretcher bars that are 1 or 2" longer for more air at the top of Angelina's head. Will live with it for a few days, then decide. I never frame my work, but I am thinking that this one may need a frame. Again, live with it stretched for a few days, then decide. We are getting dangerously close to my trailer length limit, and there will be no time to use art shippers at this point.
