Painting on wood

"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures."
Henry Beecher, 1813

I would like to share with you a small project I started and brings me pleasure and joy -
painting on wood.

The process is simple and fun; first I paint the wood with acrylic colors that I like

than I draw the line of the characters with black pen.

I create my own characters... I just love my small little and happy creatures!
after I colored them, I repeat drawing the lines again.

finally, after it dries up, I put glaze over it; to protect and preserve the color.

Drawing without limits and with full freedom, whatever comes to my mind;
is the greatest gift of all.
