new work, wood burning & plywood




so. here is a sampling of new work available in my etsy shop. i had already begun painting on plywood, but this time around i made good use of a wood burning tool i found recently - leftover from my days as a student at mass art. it was so much fun to "draw" with the wood burner over the painting and add some depth and detail. plus, i love the smell of burning wood! but who doesn't? from top to bottom these paintings are titled: a storm approaching, i've got my big eyes on you, log cabin X, and owls on rocks.
