This panel board is really neat. The wood sides are stained and it has nice hooks already on the back ready to hang. This one was 50% off and very cheap. I couldn't have bought a blank canvas for what I paid for it. I will be on the look out for more of these. You can collage or paint over the image on the front. Actually the girl a couple of days back on Nov 11 was painted on one of these also but I used oils and acrylics for her.
