I’ve been eying these deep square wooden cradle boards from Michaels. They are unprimed and the kind of beautiful thing that you buy and just fondle and never want to make a mark on it, for fear of ruining it’s potential. You could use them for painting, or encaustic or flip it backwards and create a shadowbox from it. Well, yesterday I found this 50% off (yes, that’s FIFTY PERCENT) coupon online. It’s good through Saturday. Please, click it and print one out for yourself. I was like Robyn-Hood of Michaels and handed out a couple of them to random strangers in the store. Anyway, I finally bought one of the cradle boards and started a painting I’ve had in mind for a while.
It’s only 8″ squared, but this is still huge compared to how big I usually paint (thank you business card sized artomat canvas paintings).
If it’s not obvious, this is a work in progress shot. I haven’t destroyed it yet, but there is still plenty of time for that :O
