Today is a very exciting day for me! Not only am I counting down to the release of my new Galaxy Collection on October 13th, but today is the sneak peek I’ve been dying to show you… A whole new and larger format watercolor galaxy—on a huge wood slice!
As you may have caught on, I have a thing for wood slices. My journey into galaxy painting lasted about half a second on paper before I became obsessed with painting on wood slices. I guess it’s safe to say it all started when I took my first watercolor class, and my brilliant teacher gave a walk through of mediums (aka nifty things that help you paint with watercolor). She mentioned watercolor ground, a paste-like substance you can apply to non-watercolor-paper surfaces to create watercolor absorbency.
