Pollen Makes Me Tired

Everything outside has a thin coat of yellow/green pollen. You can see how it has collected on the table outside my back door. I love spring but hate pollen. I am just praying for some rain to clean the air.
DSC_0002I wanted to share my favorite mixed media piece I created while in Skip's workshop three weeks ago. I am thrilled with the texture and color. I am not thrilled with the weight of the piece. I guess 3/4" mdf is heavier than I thought. 
DSC_0002What is MDF? Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) 
MDF is made by breaking softwoods down into individual fibers, which are then glued and pressed together. MDF is denser than particle board and has a smooth finish that takes paint very well, making it a great choice for interior projects. MDF can also be used for built-ins, cabinets, raised panels, or simple furniture. 

DSC_0002 I am not sure I love creating on MDF because even after being coated with 2 coats of gesso it still sucked up the paint. So I am still experimenting with the perfect surface to work on for larger pieces. DSC_0011
