"Shadows", 12 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board
For those wondering about museum board, its a practice I learned from Bill Reese years ago as he often used it for his small plein air paintings. I like using Risings museum board because both sides are good, unlike another brand I tried about 10 years ago. I buy 32 x 40 sheets and prepare them before cutting into small panels with my mat cutter. If anyone wants to know how I prepare them, just send me an email.

Purchase this unframed painting for $300.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.
