Learning to paint on wood

I bought these boxes to paint on. I’m learning to paint on wood instead of just canvas.  I’m using the Winsor and Newton water mixable oils for this process

You can click on the link to Blick Art Supplies to see all the wonderful colors they come in.   I get all my art supplies from them.

I am really enjoying this learning experience with wood

First Time Painting On Wood

Today was indeed another growing and learning experience for me as a visual artist

 I ventured to paint on wood. Now some will say what’s the big deal. I have always painted on canvas so for me this was very new. 

I used water mixable oils and folk paints. My challenge was the use of water and paint on wood. Too much water makes the paint spread when applied to wood. 

So here is my first piece. I also glued a star Crystal instead of painting it on her

 These are plaques I got from #Wal-Mart, the #FolkArtPaint came from #HobbyLobby.  I am going to allow it to sit a day before I do the varnish.

Saturday Sketchbook Drawing

    In the studio drawing in our sketchbook.  Cam you believe it is September.  

So much has transpired this year.  It is so important to stay focused on your #creative journey to counter the stress of everything going on with mother nature.

We currently have this heatwave in #California and now fires while the rest of the country is dealing with the aftermath of #Harvey.

Be safe everyone.💝💝💝🎨🎨🎨

#ArtistDayTrip: Cultural Food Festival

Had an awesome time at the First Annual Cultural Food Festival in Cherry Valley, California. 

There were workshops and lectures on everything from sourdough bread to benefits of raw milk.

There were demotration on making trrtree oil which smelled nothing like what you get in retail stores. This was fresh off the press and it was awesome.

I met two awesome ladies who invited me to have some fresh bread and butter with them at their table. 

A good way to bring community together while enjoying nature.

There were a lot of shops here.
