Earl's Pond - SOLD

"Earl's Pond", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
I like to use 4-ply all cotton museum board for outdoor painting trips because it is thin and lightweight. I first learned about using museum board for painting from Bill Reese, my first outdoor painting instructor. I highly recommend Bill's books on painting.



  1. I'm loving this series of romantic landscapes. A pleasure to look at. Very inspiring.

  2. I love this and your recent paintings too! I have never heard of museum board but I must give it a try. I like not having a lot of weight to carry around when painting outside!

  3. Hi Kathryn.
    Beautiful painting. Well done and all the best.

  4. Love this one- gorgeous soft colors with wonderful harmony. Also love the brushwork!!
