Well this was fun! I happened to get a look at it from upside-down, and now I have yet another idea for a sky- with the dark part near the horizon and the lighter clouds above. Hmmm...

Hi Nicki,

What a beauty. You go girl. What are you painting these on. My art store sells Masonite panels. Would they work? At art school we coated them with gesso on each side, then waited until the gesso dried, then repeated the process ten times. Now that would be cool eh? But a lengthy process. Can't do it. Gotta paint.

XO Barbara

Hi Monika,

I'm glad you like it! It is different for me, which is what makes this daily painting thing so fun... I feel free to experiment.

Hi Barbara,

I use MDF boards (I get a big sheet chopped up at the lumber store). I use the 1/4 inch thick boards so with a hanger they can be put up almost like a plaque. It is a pain to gesso them... definitely a lot of work... but I only do 3 coats which seems to seal the board well.

Have a good weekend!

Nicki XO
