Green Froggy No.1
Acrylic on Matboard
19cm x 13cm

This is a painting I did just to see if I could paint on the offcuts of Matboard. I had quite a lot of offcuts given to me for free from the local framers. I didn't have a clue what to do with them, so I thought I should try a painting experiment. The results from the experiment was great, after the painting was completely dry I gave it a couple of quick sprays of varnish to bring out the colours. So far none of the paintings have warped or faded (I finished this one several months ago). I have kept this painting because it's one of my favourites.

I love Green Tree Frogs and I have lots in my garden in summer. I have taken quite a few digital photos and love to paint them. I hope you like them too.

I will be painting a lot more on the matboards. L'ermitage below is another matboard painting.

  1. Your paintings are incredibly realistic! I love frogs too. This morning we had heaps of frog eggs on our front steps from the rain. Amazing!
