If we slanted the top of the pieces just a tad I could probably paint on them. He was game and sent me home with a box of raw limbs cut on an angle. I played around with one and determined they needed to dry a bit so I put the whole box in the water heater closet. A year later I stumbled across them again...now ready to sand down, be coated with clear gesso to and put into creative use.
Being tiny little "frames" I was not ready to paint very detailed works of art on them so I played around and had a bit of fun.
My little collection is growing...(Easter, Christmas, Summer, Spring...) come on by the studio or email me if you are interested in one, or some, they will go home with you for a mere $15.00 each.
Sometimes art needs to be as "fun" as it is "fine."
