Inspsiration Thursday Wood


This week, let’s find inspiration in Wood. Think about the various uses of wood throughout time, both practical and decorative. Consider the symbolism of wood, such as the wood element in feng shui. Look around and explore wood in your environments, furniture in your home, building structures in your town, trees in nature.
This little peice of wood I have had around for ages I have 20 more the same size. I got them at a thrift store in a baggie, did not know what I was goiong to do but have found a use for several. This little bathing beauty is one of my delights (I love anything to do with water and old bathing suits (image courtsey of fifi lepew) she was kind enough to share this image with me. I gessoed the wood, painted it a few times, rub away some of the paint to give it that old feeling, also sanded it, printed out the image in black and white, added a little colour and here it is.
There are much better peices out there, but hey I like the look of this one, I think it looks like I just found it in a junk store.
