    Condition Report*:

    Paint film in fully stable condition. A few small chips in the paint alone central top margin where board does not comfortably fit into the frame. Under UV examination there are 4 spots of inpaint, one in each of the four corners addressing what appear to be pinholes and possibly small circular shapes in the paint film. This seems to be where the board was tacked up by the artist before the work was fully dry. Also there is a fine thread embedded in the paint surface near the center in the trees, as well as other bumps in the paint, clearly having been there at the time the work was produced! Framed Dimensions 14.75 X 19 Inches
