Creating Stretcher Frameworks

Artist Jay Rolfe has a garage full of materials for his 3DSSC paintings. He spent yesterday and this morning creating the stretcher frameworks for 2 of his 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings. Here's a photo of Rolfe cutting some wood for a stretcher framework.

Then, of course, Jay Rolfe has to clean up after himself. Sawdust is messy, and failure to clean it up yesterday led to it being tracked all over the garage (into the house would be next). He's tried a big broom, but it turns out that's harder than the shop-vac. Here's a photo of Rolfe vacuuming the driveway. (Wouldn't Martha Stewart be proud!)

This is the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's unique artistic idea, his 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at
