Art project of the week

Wood Block Art

We finally finished this project. After seeing a post on design*sponge a few months back I figured it would be easy enough to do something fun with printing blocks. Shortly thereafter we made a trip to the Fremont Sunday market to check out their selection of printing blocks. Okay, the first trip the people with the blocks weren't there but the second trip proved more fruitful. Most of the blocks are chipped or damaged, but still look very cool. In fact, that gives them a lot of character. Anyway, the blocks kind of sat around the apartment for a little while while we tried to think up some fun ways to mount them. Finally on a trip to the art store for something completely different we found the wood canvas which worked out great. Added a little dark stain & hung it above our theater chair (a sample from Chuck's workplace.) Makes for a cozy area near our front door!
