Here is a sneak peek at the finished piece…mentioned in the previous post! It is a quintessential Rufus Porter-inspired harbor scene! The mural, done with acrylics, is painted on a fully cradled (2” cradle) and braced Baltic Birch panel, 24" X 36" and ready to hang. The painting has a lovely vintage appearance...crackled in many areas. In approximately 2 weeks, I will apply a barrier coat and then several coats of a matte shellac. This original will be for sale, and I will also be offering fine art giclee prints! It will be posted soon on www.earlyamericanpainter.com.
