9" x 12" oil on panel

Have you ever taken a walk through the woods and come upon a house like this?

This painting has been particularly difficult to photograph in a way that the image on the screen has the power of the painting, but this version looks close to the original on my screen. I hope that you can get the sense of the dying fall day, painted as I walked on Monhegan.

I was talking to someone in my painting class today about painting over previously painted canvases. They said that there was a possibility that the new painting would "sink" into the older painting over the course of a few years, and that the best way to prevent that was to paint the old canvas with latex exterior house paint. Has anyone anything to offer on the topic?
