I buy most of my art supplies at Artist and Craftsman in Saugus.
I stopped by recently to pick up a stretched canvas and saw some blocks of wood at the register.
I had never painted on wood before so I grabbed one and thought it would be fun to try painting on it. It turned out the blocks of wood were actually part of a promotion where the store was asking customers to paint a cupcake on the block of wood(after buying it) then bring it back to the store so it can be hung for about a month and be entered in a raffle.
So I did that.
Painting on wood is little different than a canvas surface. I really liked it and it was easier than I thought but I think I need to do it more often to get used to it and improve.
I'm glad I tried!
This is what I did:
Stop by the store and check it out in person if you want(it's only 4"x4"). It's hanging amongst other cool and interesting cupcake on wood paintings that other artists did.
The store is on the south bound side of route 1 in Saugus in that plaza that has a Starbucks and Skechers outlet.
