frames


The reason for the title of this post is because I really enjoy making my own frames for my oil paintings. But this time I used a frame by John Hodgson. It is metal and I left the finish as is. This painting will also be going to Chicago International in April. This year, paintings will be my main focal point. It is WAY more fun than furring animals! I do love to carve animals though.
