l my work is painted on hand-built frames, or directly on solid wood planks. Oil Paint on wood and wood composite, MDF and Masonite. Occasionally I will do a series on paper or canvas.  I prefer the rigidity of wood, there is no give or bounce and wood has a smooth velvety feel on my brush. Wood surfaces also allow for carving and scratching, giving defined, sharp marks.  The square is my preferred shape and is most popular, it is balanced and just simply feels whole to me… though recently I have found my work lending itself to the rectangular shape.
