I got a coat of gesso on several different sized pine blocks in preparation for a new batch of paintings. I've been working much smaller lately and have enjoyed how that has helped me be much more productive with my limited free time. I've also really liked working on the pine blocks. They are dirt cheap and wood is a great substrate for mixed media. I often use a lot of modeling paste and build up surfaces by collaging different materials into the painting. Recently, I picked up a wood burning tool as well. I love the way the burnt lines look and smell!
I'm excited to dive in a get started this weekend!
