Be Still


Oil and wax on a cradled birch panel


This painting involves oil mixed with a cold wax medium.  The surface is soft & luminous.  This painting does not have spackle under the painting, unlike the recent paintings that I've talked about, so it does not have as textured of a surface.  It's also on a cradled wood backing, so it hangs off the wall and does not need framing.   I'm excited about these new landscapes, and I really like working with wax and wood.
