A superbly composed and wonderfully atmospheric work! (What is Maroflaged wood?) v/f

Thomas Akers replied:

For floks that paint on panels you always risk the flaking of paint at the margins on a finished painting. Centuries ago painters solved the problem by using rabbit skin glue to adhere a linen or other organic fabric to the wood before applying gesso and wrapping it across the edge to the panel's back. It has the advantage of providing a luminous ground particulary with marble dust gesso and some of the "feel" of canvas. Thanks for the kind remarks, Tom

Thoughts are of a sandwich as we pass through some place on a rainy night while on the way to a event that must be kept as worlds get older.

About Thomas Akers

Thomas (Tom) Akers, b: 1942 is an award winning Virginia artist whose family has longstanding roots in that state and has included some noted painters. He studied art and painting at American University, Washington, DC; and has a background as an illustrator and forensic artist.

Usually painting in watercolors and acrylics, his works are realistic but reflect the artist's particular regard for the Impressionist and American Ashcan schools in both his choices of subjects for painting and their style of rendering.
