Lately, I have developed a fondness for wood. Some of my recent favorite pieces are the large 24″ x 48″ that I did some time ago. I also just recently finished the rectangular table for my friend, and I have recently purchased a few 18″ x 24″ panels.
There is something about the solidness of wood that I prefer over canvas. In my mind, the surface and the end result seems more permanent. I’m sure I will put my brushes to plenty of other canvases in the future, but for now, I like this track.
The new project on the burner is the small table above. I picked it up for pennies at an antique shop a couple of weekends ago. No, I don’t plan on becoming a full-time painter of furniture, I just like the idea of sprucing something up with my own touch. Plus, if it’s something that will end up being used in someone’s home, all the better.
I will keep you all up to date on the process of the new table.
Speaking of 18″ x 24″s, here is the final result of the panel that I have been working on for the past few weeks. I am pleased with the results and have already dove into the next one. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, I’ve managed to do a few more posts over at my other writing outlet, the Wall Spin Blog. One is about trains and the other about the Conte crayon. I think you will enjoy them both.
