 Oil on wood .12 x 3 inches.(Asymmetric).

Someone's trash is someone's treasure! This piece of wood was a discarded piece in a house in Delhi . Wood work going into decorative renovation in the house was a boon for me! Whilst the owner raved about how the designs had to be crafted into the furniture, the artist in me couldn't resist but ask for discarded pieces if any! Managed to get two pieces come my way and here it is...a floral veneer for the wood. No other art supply has been flown in before .So no ordinary piece this! 

I have been doing a bit of research on wood. This piece is hardboard is what I got to know. Also read that different artists have painted on wood using different ways. Am lucky that my work is impasto. THe surface is not too affected as I use such thick paste!
