I am so-o-o waiting for spring (or at least spring-“like”) weather so I can quit pouring turpentine-loaded paint in my basement and just let all the intoxicating fumes float to heaven outside. A lot of it found its way outside anyway because I left the sliding glass door open all day in 30°F weather. Which meant only my cat appreciated being in the basement since he could sit looking through the screen door.
Why not just take the canvas outside, you say? 1) It’s too cold for sissy me to work out there; and 2) the paint is poured on like water and I want it to stay where it landed. The canvas is too big to fit through the door without tilting, which would make the paint run again to places I don’t want it to be. So it sits inside until it’s dry enough to relocate safely. It doesn’t really matter if it’s in freezing temps later. I’ve never seen any damaging effects from letting it sit in bitter cold.
Maybe we should rename this the “freeze-dried” series?
