in Artist Comments
"From the moment my fingers first touched the surface, I knew I was drawn to its feel. My paintings express an emotional, spiritual and atmospheric quality. Multimedia Artboard's sensitivity responds beautifully, leaving an emotional impact upon myself and hopefully the viewer as well. It is always about the feel and mood that is so important to me as an artist.
Multimedia Artboard has become an integral part of my painting. I have used them in some of my strongest compositional and most dramatic pieces. Technically speaking, I'm drawn to the texture and stability it offers. It will accept just about any medium, can be wiped down with water or solvent and is light in weight. It is a tool of expression and a major part of my studio." - Rob Gregoretti
