Oil on wood panel
I'm experimenting with oil paint on wood panel for the first time. I'm really enjoying the process of working slowly on a painting for a month or longer. The paint dries slowly so if I need to put things away for a few hours or overnight I can pick up where I left off and the paint and brushes are ready to use.

Painting around the edges of the panel is my way of avoiding having to frame the painting. I also like how it looks.
