I painted a canvas for work (I work at a craft store) and discovered that, as long as there isn't any impasto, a scanner can digitize it just fine. It was nice to discover that I can finally paint properly - for the longest time, painting eluded me. It was fun, but never fruitful, and now it's both! Yay!
I like trees, especially alien trees. Also, I feel like doing three 10x8in canvases for work should earn me more than $8 per hour...like, I've seen people do sketches for $25 a pop! A full-on canvas has got to be worth more...
Anyway, I used Golden's OPEN (slow-drying) acrylics on stretched canvas. Original size is 10 x 8 inches.
