When I was chopping up panels I made an itty bitty one, for kicks. This is 4x5 inches. The scene is from an early morning walk around Greenville, NY. My solution for future small panels has been decided - I very much appreciate everyone's input! Since I already love the Ampersand gessobord surface, I am just going to buy big panels and cut them down. Because I hated gesso-ing anyway.
I also wanted to share some pics of some frames I just got from www.frankenframes.com. I love this simple, black, floating style. The awesome thing about the site is you can get any dimensions. So for example, the paintings I just posted that are not "standard" dimensions, are easily framed with Franken Frames (no, they are not paying me to say this).
