Painting 10 of 99

Sooo, totally new type of “canvas” for me today. This is actually four pieces of wood attached together in a 10 x 10″ square with a rope hanger on the back, so no frame is needed. I wanted to explore the rustic quality of painting a nature scene on something from nature. Even though I coated the wood with matte medium first, I felt like it took many more layers built up to give a pigmented quality, so that was a learning experience. I wrote the lyrics to the hymn “It is Well With My Soul” on the background–you can still see it in the sky. A feeling of peace and connecting with nature is what I was aiming for.
