Windstorm died a couple of months ago, and this painting was commissioned as a commemorative gift for her owner. Several friends chipped in to make the painting possible. This was a new experiment for me, oil painting on Claybord™, as opposed to my usual watercolor on Aquabord™. The neat thing about the Claybord™ is that it came affixed to a nice wood box-type frame which makes it easy to hang and also gives it a nice offset from the wall, but…I had to get used to the paint taking a long time to dry before I could varnish it–very similar to the situation with the wood stall plaque a few weeks ago. So at least now I know how much lead time to quote if I do one of this type again.
