I am so excited to have found a wonderful new art store pretty close to my house. I decided to purchase some birch wood boards/panels to paint on rather than canvas. The surface is so smooth and it accepts the paint so beautifully. The colors seem to be more vivid and rich as well! This is the perfect surface for me to work on. This painting I is 16x20 with deep sides. The light house in the distance is on Martha's Vineyard. Thanks for looking.
