Murray's Mountain

I named this painting after my father in law, Murray Goddard. Its an 8 by 10 acrylic on masonite. The masonite is gessoed and has GAC 100 painted on the surface to create a perfect barrier between the wood and the paint. This will help make sure it does not yellow in years to come. Of course it isn't varnished but if it were it would definitely yellow over time because varnish doesn't age as well as acrylic paint...but then it could be restored as so many paintings have been over the years.
