Spring



Some amazing weather has just begun here in Ontario and I for one couldn't be happier. Everyone I run into just seems to be in a better mood seeing that the long, cold winter we've just experienced is drawing to a close.





I picked up my artwork this morning for the Carriage House Show and I just couldn't be happier. Diane took each one out to present to me and I felt the chill start at my toes and eventually work it's way to the top of my head. I just couldn't believe the work could look that wonderful. I'm not going rattle on again about framing as I did that in my last post but suffice to say.........I am one happy girl.
Below you can find the before and after of "The Village". It started out with a plain white mat and a brown wood frame. Here is before minus the frame because I couldn't find a shot of it........just imagine that there is a brown wooden frame around it. The size was originally an 8"x10" but is now a 16"x12". It goes without saying a photo can never take the place of seeing it live.....besides I'm not a great photographer either as you can see by how lopsided the photo is.

Framing always amazes me. It's so crucial. Wonderful that you have a good framer!
I'm glad you're finally seeing signs of spring. I love your photos of your area.

That looks wonderful! I do like the big mats for smaller pieces, it really draws you in to the art.

Girl Work Studio....thanks so much for your encouraging comment. In person they look outstanding. They raised the mat so your right it does really draw you in.
