New Every Morning, shore line, shallow waves

"New Every Morning"
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; 
they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)

I just updated this little beach scene.  Originally I had painted the sides of the cradled hardboard and left it unframed, but then I found this larger cradled hardboard, which I had planned to use for a mixed media piece.  When I set the 10 x 10 inch painting next to the 12 x 12 inch unpainted board, I thought, "Wow! That might fit perfectly if I invert it..." I stained the back and painted the frame piece in the front and the sides before joining the two boards. How cool is that?  It makes a beautiful floater frame! (See the images below.)

I have become quite fond of painting on wood.  I look for patterns in the grain and use that to find the waves.  Then I layer the different effects of the transparent water.   It is exciting to see it all come together! 

I measured the back precisely for where to place the hanger brackets.  They hold the whole piece together and hold the wire nicely.
