The painting is a watercolor on a board with watercolor gesso ground and has an archival mat finish to protect it. Painting watercolor on this gessoed board allows me to make large pieces without having to frame it behind glass. This painting is already invisibly framed from the front, with 2 inches of pine wood elegantly showing on the sides. Painting size: 2 feet wide x 2 feet tall, 2 inches thick, weighs approximately one pound. Completely ready to hang. This is original artwork.
