canvas painting

There was a garage sale down the street from us yesterday and we had to see what deals we could find.  I found a canvas wrapped picture of a tiger for $0.50 (can't buy a new one for that price) but I bought it for the canvas. We painted the picture with some gesso, it did not cover as well as I had hoped but by the time we are going to be done with things I'm sure that it won't matter.

We will hang this 'masterpiece' on one of our walls with 3M picture hanging strips. Have you ever used these? These are amazing, we just love them. I plan to paint over this masterpiece some time down the road and with these strips it makes it so easy to remove the canvas from the wall and put it up again.
