English Bulldog

"English Bull"
5 x 5 inches, Oil on Board
I've been getting ready for Saturday's exhibit at Grapevine's Palace Theater. I love putting paintings into frames. Some frames really make paintings come alive! I had ordered a bunch of 5 x 5 inch frames from an online company which sells beautiful pre-made frames made from their "left overs" - so you don't get to chose what you get - it's like opening a Christmas present. One of these frames was a super wide one, almost 6 inches with the opening for a 5 x 5 painting. I'm calling it the monster frame. Well whaddya know - the last painting I did, San Biagio, looks like a jewel in it!
So, it's been Happy Framing these past few days.
