Fly Away

I am so in love with these wooden panels thanks to Nolwenn.  I love the smooth, solid texture of them. I love the way the image wraps around the side so that it is truly ready for hanging, no framing necessary.

Artists who just wrap the edges with black tape, take note: you are missing out on a beautiful effect! It can be hard to remember though... to continue the pattern around a corner, to spread the gel medium along the side of the panel only to accidentally squash it when you pick it up later. It happens.

But I'm also leaving the realm of Compact Storage. I originally went back to painting on paper so that I could keep painting without having to take up storage space. But these... these I almost want to make hundreds and line my walls with them!
