Illustration Friday: "Impossibility"

hoop This is a watercolor and ink on Arches paper, mounted on board, 8"x10" (20cm x 25cm) . I've entered it in this week's Illustration Friday submission theme, "Impossibility". I glued the finished paper painting to a masonite board and kept it pressed for many hours until it was completely dried. Then, I thickly coated it with a water-based sealer. The result was a watercolor painting that didn't need matting or glass covering. Someone snapped it up as soon as I put it up for sale. I intend to perfect this method because I love and even prefer to work with paper. But I sometimes find the matting, framing and glass that necessarily goes with paper a little cumbersome, costly, and sometimes separates the viewer from the tactile virtues of the piece.
