For a cool contemporary home, these DIY paintings might be fun and flexible.
These look so sophisticated. But actually, they’re simply canvases stretched on wood frames covered liberally with gesso-thickened paint. And where in the world would artists be without the miracle of gesso?
Just moving one colored canvas in or out of a scene makes a big difference.
Other advantages: These canvases are:
• Easy to hang
• Easy to store
• Easy to move
These paintings were included in “Kitty Bartholomew’s Decorating Style,” a book that I co-authored.
They were photographed in the Westwood condo of a cool young couple.
