Into The Abyss
As a Christmas present to myself I had a canvas print made. First time ever, rather pricey and the result was very pleasing. Usually the lab sends off the canvas for stretching & mounting and returns it as a complete job, but it being Christmas holidays, the framing company was shut until yesterday and I was given the canvas loosely rolled up into brown paper.
So today I went to look for the canvas to take it in for the mounting job, only to find it missing and completely GONE. Then I remembered my husband having gone on a tidying binge... phoned him at work, and after much "I haven't got a clue" stuff from him, it transpired that the one place to look might be in a box in the garage.
Sure enough... stuffed in amongst all manner of other cr@p, there was my expensive canvas print, with two large creases folded into it. My daughter, acting on previous advice, sprayed it with water mist in order to straighten it out... but the printing ink reacted and it's gone all wavy and blotchy and bye-bye canvas print. I'm pretty grumpish about it all. Hrrmph.
Here's a photo I took yesterday in one of the local fishing harbours - it feels quite appropriate
