Why paint on cardboard?

Lately I have been fascinated with painting on cardboard. To start with, there is the fact that most art eventually becomes garbage. Now what was discarded, the packaging, becomes the thing of value. And yet, when the piece has lived its lifespan in your decor, you can throw it away with no hard feelings. It is only cardboard. The material is free, easy to find when out on a walk for a spontaneous drawing, and relatively durable. Plus, the smooth brown surface allows me to paint light on dark, which I really enjoy.
