As I’ve mentioned in an earlier article on improving compositions, choosing the correct size and crop of your artwork is extremely important. If you’re a painter, the only way to really do that is to stretch your own canvas to the shape and size you want. I use materials and tools that anyone can find at their local hardware store, and often make large canvases for a tiny fraction of the price that it would cost me to buy them already made. The inner frame, or structure, of every canvas I create is made out of 1×2 wood, and quarter-round trim.

Books: Lichtenstein In the late 50s and 60s, American painter Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) became one of the most important exponents of Pop Art - that movement which transformed products of mass consumption and the entertainment industry into subjects for art. This apotheosis of banal, everyday objects simultaneously constituted a criticism of the traditional elitist understanding of art. Almost alone among artists, Lichtenstein pursued the question of how an image becomes a work of art. Wholly in keeping with the spirit of the Classical Modern, he held that it was not the "rank" of the picture’s subject that lends the picture its artistic character, but rather the artist’s formal treatment of it.
