I’ve discovered that cutting boards come in many shapes. Its fun looking for the unique. It is also a good reason to go shopping. So when my husband asks me “what are we looking for?” I smile and say “Honey we are looking for the unique, for the different, for the one of a kind.”
So while shopping with family in Frederick, Maryland I found a moose shaped cutting board. It’s new; it’s unique; it’s perfect. I knew I wanted to paint it.
Cutting boards are usually very smooth and absorbent. So getting paint to stick takes patience and persistence. What to paint wasn’t a problem. Painting a moose on a moose cutting board made sense to me.
Here he is in the wild. It’s from several photos of moose in Alaska. A state where the glaciers are melting at an accelerated rate. Global warming is real and the beauty we enjoy will be gone along with the wildlife.
I hope I haven’t painted the next animal to be extinct.
