Wood panels

I have only painted on canvas once, and i happen to have a piece i am working on now on a nice wrapped canvas. But truth be told, i LOVE painting on wood, well primed of course. Just have gotten so acquainted and enamored of the smoothness of wood.

And I have learned to make cradles for each of my paintings, so I avoid the matting and framing thing. Just a nice cradle, painted black, and voila....ready to hang.

I use mostly Golden Open Acrylics these days.....



  1. Joanie, nice to see you here. I've just visited your site and like what you did with gouache and India ink.

  2. Hi Joanie, Seems like a beautiful idea.. can you please elaborate on making a cradle? Thanks.
