Apple Tree

This is the first oil painting I did. It was a gift to my mother. I misjudged the drying time of oil paint and did the painting about a week before I went to go visit her. It ended up in the back seat of the car on a trash bag the whole trip.

While the paint was still wet, I cut the canvas in the squares, then glued them to blocks of wood. I got a square piece of plywood, the I got varying thicknesses of little square pieces of wood and glued them to the plywood. I also just used a normal can of flat black spraypaint and painted the wood.
