Headlands Again

Headlands East, 6 x 12, Oil on Panel
Another painting resulting from the birding morning on Sunday. In this case this painting is done on one of those new panels that are in the stores now. They're called The Artist's Panel made by Ampersand. (probably other companies marketing them too) Basically its a masonite panel on a wood frame. Kindof a gallery wrap look. The surface is intriquing to work on... Its smoothish as opposed to the feel of canvas. Paint moves differently on it. I enjoyed working on this painting and on the surface. The oil maintained translucency and was easy to work into. So I bought 2 more panels tonight. I can play some more!

Tracy Helgeson (www.worksbytracy.blogspot.com) works on birchwood panels. Besides the fact that her paintings are amazing and I am lucky enough to own one due to a Pay It Forward venture via artist's bloggers last summer; the panels lend a dimension to her work. Plus there's no framing involved!

  1. it's so great to see your latest post...lovely little piece and as your work often does, it makes me sigh for those 'hometown' landscapes. i always loved the headlands zone. the surface you describe sounds interesting i'll look for it.
    the oberlin exhbition at FAVA closes next week so i'll be back to pack 'er up and drive back to virginia through the fall splendor...do you sit out in the studio pavillion and visualize the amazing place that you'll be working 'before ya know it'? so cool.
