“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” / by mirena

Happy Birthday, Voltaire ! Here is my little dance to the tune of a Bulgarian folk song - I am preparing several canvases the traditional way. I stretch my own raw linen, size it with rabbit skin glue and prime it with several thin coats of lead oil, which I let dry for two weeks between coats. The tricky part with lead is that it is toxic so I dress up hazmat fot this little dance.
