I decided that now was a good time to use it and it was so wonderful to work on. Even though it was old, the paint went on beautifully, just the way I wanted it to. With such heavy paper, I didn't even have to mount it. I have to say I was in my glory painting on it and I just went with what came into my mind as the paint flowed on through my brushes.
I call it "Silence in the Wood", and it is 22" x 30". I have matted it and have plans to frame it for the judged show coming up in the fall at the Mispillion Art Gallery.
