I usually paint on stretched canvas, but I had a large cabinet door that I saved from our kitchen renovation that I decided I wanted to try painting on. After sanding it down, I painted using acrylics. It was a completely new experience! Wood reacts differently than canvas to paint. It soaks it up. It peeks through. This is what it looked like finished. I actually took the piece down to an art gallery that sells my art for a show and it sold pretty quickly, so I guess the experiment was a success! Cheesy

Anyone else paint on wood?

Thank you! It was a pretty big cabinet door... 24 x 36 inches, I think.

This is gorgeous. The colors blending on the wood are wonderfully serene. I enjoy your peaceful art style very much. Smiley
