UNEXHIBITED WORKS - An Occasional Series

I have just found the first 'proper' painting that I made at college.  It was an exercise where we had to make the stretcher, boil up the rabbit skin glue to size it, apply layers of gesso with sanding in between...we then had to bring in 3 objects from home to paint.  I brought my kettle, some driftwood and a striped towel - I like that I chose a strong graphic element - a precursor of things to come.  The painting measured 30cm x 40cm, acrylic on canvas, 1985.
