Knitted Canvasses

The Knitted Canvas series started while I was working on a 7 ‘x 8’ unstretched canvas.  As I staple-gunned it to a wall I realized that canvas is just fancy fabric, and that as a knitter I make fabric.  So, why shouldn’t I make my own canvasses?

Each piece is hand-knitted, prepared with a sizer, and then oil painted in order to combine the male-dominated fine art of abstract oil painting with the female-dominated craft of knitting.
