New "old" canvases

I recently took several paintings to my local gallery
and picked up some other paintings to bring home. When I came home I thought about what to do with all the paintings I now needed to store. I already had several paintings stashed around the house. Somewhere along the line I changed my focus and the paintings from the past just do not measure up anymore. 

So I took 24 canvases outside to the back yard and painted gesso over them. I feel very good about doing this which is surprising considering how much time, work and thought goes into them when I painted them. A very freeing decision with no regrets. New canvases, new ideas and a fresh start for the fall. All good.
