Thought to do some painting on the lovely bits of wood about the studio. Whole different experience, painting on wood.

This is  new. I don’t know if the view is through an opened door or window, maybe standing outside under the moon. I liked the cozy feel of it, the varied background from left to right. Very much really the way I live, as if inside a greenhouse. And I am at work continuously to bypass walls between two such events. Mentally and physically.

It’s name is   Night. Outside Inside.  Oil on Wood.  Old plank of pine. Probably. Maybe 12 X 36 inches

  1. I’m guessing that wood has built in stains and textures which are perhaps both a challenge and a joy to incorporate into your design. Keep bandaids handy for the occasional splinter. 🙂

    • Quite right on all counts, John. Including the occasional splinter on rough old boards, or sanding them down in spots so there’s a paintable surface. I may be wrong but I don’t think stretched fabric was used much before the Renaissance. I swear, my profound early experiences with walls of concrete and plaster and wood still resonate with me. I find the doing of this very touchingly reminiscent.

  2. Fascinating how changing the medium from super smooth metal to grainy wood creates such diverse results. I believe you’re right about the wood adding depth and texture.

    • Thanks, Gunta.
      The garden is an enormous inspiration to me though I rarely paint directly from it the blazing images remain and follow me up to my easel in my studio. It’s very exciting to introduce a new medium. Something I’m sure you’ve experienced from changing lenses or lighting with your marvelous camera. I have two more to post later. Thanks again.
