Interesting time at the Rourke Museum in Moorhead. I was delving into the world of an artist in preparation for “Red” at Theatre B in September. Al showed us how to stretch a canvas and how to apply a base or undercoat.
We had some great discussions about the mind of a painter, how serious this guy Mark Rothko must have been and how important his work was to him. We were outdoors, slinging paint. Too much natural sunlight (Oy) but is was a wonderful experience and I learned a lot that I hope to take to the stage.
