Westmont 5x5 Benefit

My alma mater sent out nearly a 1000 sheets of 5x5 BFK Rives paper to artists all over the country, the returned pieces will be sold at the exhibition (in the gorgeous new Westmont Museum) in December.  

I've never painted with oils on paper before and was a little nervous about how the paint was going to react with it.  I used about 5 coats of clear gesso beforehand just to make sure it was enough.  It turned out to be a great surface to paint on, no complaints at all!  I did a larger version of this cliff previously, and since I like it so much I decided to use it as the subject for this piece.
