Many people have made some nice comments about my framing, so I thought I would write a short blog about it.
I personally feel that a frame is an extension of a painting, the finishing touch, if you will, so I make an effort to get the right one for the piece—after all I have taken a lot of time to create the painting. My goal is to showcase the work in a way that supports the look and feel of the piece and doesn't distract the viewer from the focus, which is the art. I use archival mats as well as UV protective glass to support the overall quality of the work.
Each artist has their own way of presenting work, and each medium has different requirements for presentation, some art doesn't need a frame at all. If you have any questions about the art, medium or framing when viewing a piece, feel free to ask the artist or a representative.

The title has been something I have been pondering since I began the project, every painting is personal and I like to title them accordingly. After considering several options, "Through the Shoals" seemed to be the title most reflective of my thoughts. It not only portrays the birds feeding through the shallows, but also my journey through these last several months of breast cancer treatments.

I am feeling very excited about my art and look forward to presenting the flamingos, which I hope to post next Friday.

I plan on having a discussion about medium, inspiration and process, and may also briefly explore how life can throw you a curve-ball and how it does or does not effect the creative process. I'll bring some paintings and present images to aid in discussion.
