Across from the Wall

Additional Information

This oil on board painting was completed on sight during an OSA retreat to Georgian Bay. After retuning to the studio I varnish it and drop it in an ash floater frame that I have prepared myself with a dark charcoal finish. When it leaves the studio it is wired and ready for hanging.

Because the brushstrokes are so important to my painting language, I want them undisturbed, which is very hard to do in the bush or on the side of a rock. I had to devise a way to protect the paint from nature’s elements. When the painting leaves my easel on site, it will be finished. I do not touch up in the studio. So, the painting comes off the easel and is dropped into its own medium sized pizza box ready to be taken to my van. The fresh oil painting stays well preserved in its box during transportation and during the drying process.
