I just recently primered two small 8X8" canvases in an attempt to motivate myself to work on some stuff for my etsy shop. Oh woe- it is pitiful at the moment. I haven't felt much like doing the boxes and only want to do what I feel like right now. That would be painting on canvases. So even while I'm engrossed in the big monster 36" x 36" right now, I think doing some small ones in a shorter amount of time will be bring me small satisfactions in the meantime.
