messing around with wood

I called in at Jones’ place the other week and managed to make off with some lovely chunks of old oak. God knows what they were originally, but they seemed destined for some attention in one form or another. Some paint/glue/graphite led to this:

Keyholder

The other chunk in the pic is next on the hit list. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks fooling around on found bits of wood, doors and suchlike. With mixed success, but it’s fun to mix it up a little.

Also looking forward to a timed print release with 1xRun They’ve been really cool guys to work with and have released some awesome prints recently, so super excited to be working with them. Print drops next Friday April 22nd and will only be available until the 28th – so get those orders ready or miss it forEVAH!

One response to “messing around with wood

  1. I love the idea of painting on old wooden objects. I had a friend that used to live here in Connecticut, but sadly has moved to California. She and I used to travel the flea markets and pick up old doors, vintage wooden ironing boards, bread boards, discarded window shutters and basically anything wooden and weathered. Depending on the piece we would sand off old paint, often leaving some on for effect, or strip and refinish, but most often leave as is. Then paint wonderful paintings (she was better than me to be honest) and folk art. You reminded me of this with your ‘keyholder’ and I will revisit this. Thanks for the reinspiration, Craww!!
