At least, exciting to me! I’m very interested in painting on wood, handmade signs, weathered wood, etc. I have wanted to work on a project like this since, well, since January when I last worked on one! It always feels good to follow through on ideas, regardless of how they turn out. For the longest time I thought, “I should get some wood and paint it.” I don’t know what held me back. But it was surprisingly easy to walk in to Ace, pick out wood, and ask them to cut it. And cheap! It’s a different quality that what you find in the art store, I’m sure, but it was so much cheaper.
I pulled out the hand sander, which makes me feel like a pro, and gave the wood a light sanding. Then I played with painting with acrylics, sometimes adding a lot of water.
