The Klatch, framed
I LOVE to haunt thrift stores and estate sales to find fun things; among them frames that I can use for a painting. This is a found frame that I took apart and used to frame "The Klatch" an Ostrich Gathering. This trio is painted on rice paper with a bit of paper streamed throughout. It is hard to see, but there is a bit of gold detail added to these gals to tie it all together. This is a small piece, framed under glass...Just a little fun in gold for an upcoming miniature show at the AAR RIVER GALLERY in Westminster...IF they get in that is! Wish me luck!
I am really missing my little Nebraska family...so much growing up! My sweetheart grandson Paxton; now 4 is actually starting pre-school already! My how time flies!
Before Lottie A and B head off to their new owner I had a funny experience. I can't imagine it NOT happening when I paint two exact poses! One in the couple liked A better, and the other liked B better...that is EXPECTED, and no biggie because one is being given as a gift...HOWEVER the comment about Lottie B drove my OCD ness crazy! HA. She mentioned that the smile didn't seem quite as happe in B...NOW, she was quite happy with them, but I had to put them side by side and work on LOTTIE B's smile...I think I made it a bit happier! See for yourself...
SO, now we have the two pups waiting to ship to their new owner...
