If you're thinking what I'm thinking, then here are the supplies you need to make your own:

- If you're going to sell them: varnish.
Personally, I have been known to make my art on paper and then transfer it over to the panel. (That way if things don't go quite right, I haven't wasted a wood panel.) Here are some examples of work created on paper and then mounted on a wood panel:

I love the look of several small works clustered together. It's also a great way to have a flexible piece of art that can be changed to fit different wall sizes. And if wooden panels aren't your thing, you can always use a series of framed works, as in these examples featuring my artwork:
Grouping small work is a great way to get a lot of bang for your buck! If you're interested in any of the artwork you see in the images above, you can find them in my shop.
Thanks for stopping by!
