L'affair avec wood

                  Marquetry - Oil on wood. 14x 12 " 

Mahogany. Oil on wood with palette knives.
20x 16 inches.

My serendipitous foray into wood has spoilt me. After the two pieces of wood which came my way I attacked this piece stashed away from an AC repair job two years back. I gave vent to my wood withdrawal happily for this. My knives have finally met their match on wood. I can slash and flourish without worrying about cutting! Unlike canvas!
My new year has started with a new promise.Some new alliances and new avenues. Am excited and hoping to paint a lot this year!
Meanwhile if anyone wants to give me a gift you can pass any discarded pieces of wood my way.I'd be delighted!:)
