Framing Day

This week I’ve been working on some custom framing projects, which is always a fun thing to do! I love how a frame transforms a painting.

Three of the pieces framed are being donated to the YWCA of Spokane.  They are having their annual fundraiser next month to raise money for battered women. I was honored to be asked to submit a donation. The event is called “An Evening in Tuscany”.

I’m submitting my “Wine Triptych”, a series of three oil paintings. The first painting in the collection is an 11″x14″ of the three subjects. Next is a 5″x7″ of the wine glass, and last is a 4″x5″ of the grapes. I’m so pleased with how they all turned out. The background has a mixed media effect and is very textural.

Calf oil painting ~ Finished

Norman

Here’s a little calf I recently finished from my works in progress pile. He was painted from a reference photo from another local artist. He will be framed in white and hung in my kitchen near my chicken painting, which I posted about a few weeks ago.

Painted in oils on an 8″x10″ panel. I’m really happy with how he turned out.

Now my works in progress pile is finished! I’ll share the last painting when it dries down a bit. I’m onto new works now; a series called “30 Shades of White”. Stay tuned for more on that soon. 🙂
