"100 SLC Porches, No.23"

"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.23"
Oil on 12" x 12" Wooden Panel
This is painted on a new surface for me.  It's a wooden 12" x 12" panel that I got at a local art store.  I was curious about what it would be like to oil paint on a different type of surface.  It was interesting because the wood absorbed the oil paint.  It was much like staining a wood surface, and I noticed that some of the oil paints color would become a bit muted as they were absorbed by the wood.  This was a first attempt on such a surface and I'm looking forward to trying some more paintings on this type of surface.  It's all a learning curve.  If you would like to check out the overall progress of the 100 Salt Lake City Porches check out this page.
