this is an original painting on cradled birch wood panel. it is 3/4" thick and has a wire on the back, ready to hang. signed and titled on the back as well. it's tough buying art on the internet. i am happy to accept returns in new condition but please understand i do need you to pay for return shipping. this is largely because i sell my art with a reasonable mark up, not what i think art should be priced based on gallery standards. thanks for understanding!
