Picasso’s art is always so interesting and fun to try to interpret! He painted this as a woman/flower. I found it fun to paint my version on a tote. Unusual, I know, to have Picasso on a tote – but this is not your usual tote! It’s raw edged – all the seams are on the outside – adding a lot of pizzazz. The antique brass hardware is an extra bonus. So a great tote deserves a great piece of art!

This bag is a lovely cilantro green and made of heavy duty 14 oz cotton canvas. It measures 13 1/2W x 14H x 3 1/2D. Two 20” natural colored cotton webbing straps with antique brass hardware. There is an inside hanging pocket for cell phone, glasses or whatever. The bottom is gusseted and has a base of several layers of heavy duty canvas to give it more stability.

Preparation & Painting…

As always, I’m quite a stickler for proper preparation of an item before painting. And the same goes for canvas – which generally takes me more time than leather and suede to prepare! I want the art and bag to last so I take great care to ensure it will.

First I start with a high quality canvas bag. Although they have been enzyme or garment washed, I wash and dry the bags to remove any possible chemical residue or sizing left in the fabric. I need to make sure the paint will penetrate the fibers and adhere properly.

I then apply a neutral/clear coat of professional acrylic leather paint to prevent any bleed through of color (can be nasty looking on a bag with a flap.) I use the leather paint as I have worked with it for over 9 years, and it has a flex additive so it will not crack or peel when applied properly. Each coat of paint takes 24 hours to “cure” before applying the next coat. It’s a meticulous and a multi-day process.

After the painting is done I let it sit for a few days, then I hand wash the canvas bag. YES! I wash it. Let’s face it – canvas is fabric and will get dirty. I assume you will want to wash it and keep it fresh and fabulous looking. So feel free! Just hand wash, no soaking please, and hang to dry. You’ll be able to carry this bag for years, and you will find the art will last longer than the bag!

Frequently asked questions about clpstudio

Dimensions for all bags are listed. If you're still not sure, please send me the dimensions of your computer and I'll check it out for you.
Any vintage bag can be hand washed in mild soap and line dried. Hand washing will not affect the art - the paint is permanent. It will also not affect leather trims on vintage bags. The only exceptions would be a few of the newer styles like the vertical messenger with a hard backerboard in it or the new laptop bags with leather trims.
It depends on the time of year with my painting schedule , but generally no more than 3 - 5 additional days.
If it's of similar detail and one color like others in my shop it'll vary between $5 - $10. If it's more detail and additional colors I can provide you with a quote.
This is the beauty of hand painting! Most all of the art can be painted on about any bag, unless there is a size limitation. You choose your bag and you choose your art!
More than likely not. Each style of bag is exactly the same configuration. It may vary slightly in shade or wear/storage marks on vintage bags. I have chosen to do this to keep costs at a reasonable price. If I were to take photos of each bag, by the time I color correct, crop, and edit photos there would be an increase of approximately $10 per bag. If there is something markedly different in the bag I will either note that or I will do a separate listing.
