The Delicata series consists of mixed-media paintings mounted on MDO board. The media are mostly acrylic paint along with some or all of these: pastel, oil pastel, colored pencil, graphite, inks, wax crayon, and paper. MDO board (medium density overlay panel) is a paintable surface made of plywood with a weather-resistant resin overlay bonded to the wood by heat and pressure. The overlay resists water, weather, wear, and degradation. The paintings are not covered with glass. They are protected by invisible acrylic media that provide a strong surface. The frame is a minimal German silver metallic. The paintings may be hung as horizontals or verticals and are equipped for both options.
