Feeling adventurous, I have started painting on wooden objects. The first wooden thing I bought was a wine carrying case from a consignment shop. I primed most of it and painted grape vines on the sides and a wine bottle on the front. Since this will be a gift to Hubby’s parents and they make their own wine, the bottle will have Hubby’s last name on the label.
Now let me tell you, if you don’t put gesso on the wood, like I opted not to do, wood is harder to paint on, as mistakes are more challenging to fix. But I do love the idea of functional objects being creative, so I’m going to keep painting on various objects-trays, signs, bread boxes, chairs, etc.
Perhaps next I will paint Mocha-our friend’s cross-eyed kitty. Isn’t she sweet? We met her after brunch a couple of posts ago.
