Painting on wood pieces
My son has a saw mill and is cutting down trees on his tree farm and fileting them up to make wood for building the house he is working on. He is amazingly resourceful.
I was thinking about taking some of the scraps and painting pictures on them, but I need help from someone in how to do it. How do I prepare the surface of the wood scraps for an oil painting? How long does the wood need to be dried out? These trees were cut down over the winter before the sap started flowing. They are Lob Lolly pines.
Any advice on this subject would be very helpful. I'm excited about this.
I can just see a Texas Longhorn on this piece and maybe have the wood trimmed down a little. My husband said he would cut it however I need it.
