What are you up to this Wednesday?


I have wood prepped for painting. It's cut 20x30 cm (let's say it's 8x12 inches) and gessoed twice. And yes, I'm still using this wee little table. Somehow buying a bigger work desk is not my priority. But it should be.

My parents are moving within a month and are getting new furniture for the apartment. Maybe I should tag along and throw the desk in the shopping cart while they're looking for a sofa or something. :) Of course I'll disappear just before we hit the cash register. My parents are great like that. :)))

And if you come back on Friday, I'll show you the first finished painting on one of these wood thingies. Are they called a wood panel? Cause panel suggests a thin panel of wood to me. This one is 2 cm thick. I don't know how much that is in inches.

I mentioned some time ago that I want to do some paintings inspired by famous paintings. Not artists per say but the paintings themselves. You know. Like Mona Lisa and stuff. :) Only I won't be doing Mona Lisa but other stuff. So come check it out on Friday. :)

For now go check on WOYWW. :)

  3. Zelo zanimiva miza - ampak mogoče bo res dobro, da se pridružiš staršem pri nakupih :-)! 2 cm sta skoraj en inch - 2,5 cm je en inch natančno! Bom pokukala na tvoj blog v petek da vidim kaj si ustvarila!
    Lep pozdravček

  11. I don't think it matters how big your desk is, we all end up, ultimately, crafting in a space the size of the piece we're working on! Those wood panels look intriguing - I will have to try and remember to come back on Friday!

    Thanks for stopping by....

    Lucky you with such nice parents, treasure them. Hugs, Neet

  13. Ooh, I can't wait for Friday!

    I would call those wooden blocks.
    I'd love a huge workspace so I can spread everything out - a big studio with great light and cupboards and drawers and a huge wall to hang canvasses on....

  14. Jaa, jaz bi tudi na takele lesene ploščice kaj delala.. mah, pa tudi na papir ali platno zadnje čase ne :)
    Ampak bom.. res bom.. čez par tednov. Do takrat pa bom čisto zadovoljna z obiskovanjem tujih blogov. Oz. nekaj časa še to ne, ko bom na morju :)

  28. Well they do say that greta things come in small packages! I haven't painted onto wood in years, you've inspired me to go and dig out all my old kit! Thank you for sharing, happy WOYWW!

    ps, my daughter got a sofa bed out of me for her new apartment in a similar way, of cousre I knew that I would be buying it for her before we got into the store! Parents never mind, in fact I think we like it! x

  29. I love painting on wood - it is so forgiving,
    on tuesday i used pastel chalks onto textured paper and was getting hugely frustrated that my work was taking longer and I had to work harder!!! the proportions just kept going skwiffy
    it's an expressive impressionist piece so it isn't as if its a difficult style...

    can wait to see your mona lisa

    so much more work to do realism style brave you,

    Have Fun,

    Dx
