Good afternoon on this cool afternoon in Florida. I am enjoying the weather change but we need some sun. 

 5x5 Panels is something new I wanted to do. I saw them last year at a show in Raleigh so thought I would give it a go. The Panels will be at my Show in Winter Haven in March so I hope to have a few more made before then.

 These panels are made from 3/8 in hardboard (masonite old word for it) and are 5x5 inches. I have to put two coats of Gesso on them so the paint will adhere to the surface. I then will use acrylic paint and watercolors. Once they have dried I use a Krylon Satin Spray to protect the paintings. I then use a Liquitex Pouring Medium to protect it and give a similar surface you would find on a painting with resin. Thats it.

 Still waiting for my booth assignment at Bloomin Art Festival in Bartow Fl. March 5-6, 2016. Once I hear I will update my Facebook page. 

Have a blessed week and will see you soon. See Ya!
