Stretched Canvas vs Wood Panel

Oil paintings on stretched canvas are gallery wrapped, are created with a full portrait and background, are painted on all sides, and wired for immediate hanging. Oil paintings on wood panel use the natural beauty of the wood grain as the background for the portrait and wired for immediate hanging. Both types of oil paintings take several weeks to dry for proper shipment.
