   Yipee....I had fun today!  I decided to paint on illustration board or mat board that had been gessoed to make the surface suitable for oil paints.  I wanted to offer a smaller size to my collectors at a lower price point also.  This size comes with a precut white mat that will make it ready to you to place in a standard frame under glass.  I will get a picture ready when it dries a bit with it behind a mat.  I think it will make a lovely painting and great for a Father's Day gift!  I will have some more of them in different subjects in the next couple of days.  I also have a couple of 5" by 5" on panel to share soon!  Told you I had a break through!  I wanted to share a couple of other things that I think have helped me loosen up a bit...especially the edges.  One is that I started using a mixture of stand oil/ linseed oil with gamsol turps and the other is I am not using a round brush for almost the whole piece!  I used to use mainly filberts.  Well, enough of all that artsy talk!  Tomorrow I plan to get back to my boat painting.  Have a wonderful Thursday!  Stay cool!
