Frame It!

This framed artwork photo was sent to me today.  I know its a preference thing, but, I really try to encourage peeps that purchase my pieces, especially if they are smaller works like the “Rides” to invest in framing.  Not to mention it also helps to protect/preserve the art.  Beautifully framed Mitchel!  See you at Quiltfest Oasis Palm Springs 2016!   “Cool Classic Rides 2″ coming 2016.

“Through My Mother’s Eyes”

I love the look of threads mixed with a painted texture.  The theme is My Inner Self Portrait.  Below is a partial detail shot.  All the works of art in this special exhibit measure 30 x 50.   My piece was based on a photo of my Mother who was about 20 at the time.  She looks as though her heart is heavy with a glow of sadness in her eyes.  I love the photo even though she looks lost in her thoughts.   Thrilled to have “Through My Mother’s Eyes” debut alongside fantastic works by fabulous artists at  Road To California, January 22-25, 2015.  Check out amazing art at Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists.  Link below.
