Jake in Palfrey Creek
|"Jake in Palfrey Creek" (oil on birch panel 6 x 8 in. collection of New Brunswick Museum)
For my smaller oils I am now using birch panels instead of stretched canvas, and enjoying the satiny feel of each stroke, and its ready acceptance of the paint, with no struggle to fill the weave of the canvas. I'm pleased with the likeness of Jake, and everyone at BiotaNB recognized him immediately - quite the accomplishment with a full figure of less than 2 inches high!
