Show Me the Way – Ready to Stretch

I’m going to stretch this piece on foam core to prepare it for framing.  For this, I need thin foam core, and t-pins.  The foam core has to be thin enough to fit in the frame.  The piece has open-work, but the white of the foam core makes a good background for the cream of the canvas.

The first step is to cut the foam core to size.  It should be a little smaller than the space in the frame, because the canvas wrapping around the foam core will add bulk.

Prayer: Sometimes the work of the days results in an uneven quality to how we perceive our lives.  Father, help her to see and appreciate the beauty of her work as a whole.
