A Baker's Dozen

Baker's Dozen is inspired by scenes I've seen at the Blackwater Refuge, near Easton, where I visit every year. I can also see how my 75 for 75 bird study project has influenced a lot of my recent work. The idea for this particular piece came from one of the studies.

I've cropped the image so you can see the edges of the painting. Once the painting is dry, I sand the edges and round the corners with a fine sandpaper, then float the panel on black foam core, leaving about 1/4" of foam core showing between the edge of the painting and the frame. A lot of my paintings are framed this way as it gives my work a more contemporary look.
