Thank you, all. Those RayMar Linen panels are very nice for oil painting. I leave pretty much all of the linen texture intact, because I like the way linen takes the paint from the brush.

Beautiful bee and thistle flower. Looks like summer, even though the ground is covered in snow at least 9" deep and that's the least amount here. Temp too cold to melt it :) Hope you win the competition with this beauty.
