    Im thinking about doing an abstract painting for my room.. I'm just wondering if there is a major difference between canvas and wood. Canvas is pretty expensive so will wood give the same effect?

    Thanks

    man if you dont know that already then you must suck enough to have shitty letters. this isnt the right place for this question..

    if you want to know.. use a canvas.

    well, it's like anything else, when you put yourself in a public forum (of any kind) you will be subjected to scrutiny, especially with graff.

    you asked a question, you got answers.

    it's up to you to do the math.

    a decent sized canvass is like less than $20.

    it's even cheaper if you stretch your own!


    just keep this in mind, most paint sticks on ANYTHING!


    here's a concept to think about


    "found objects"
