Today

6x6" oil on gessoboard NFS


This photo doesnt do this little painting justice at all. It is so yummy in person with rich color that I just cant seem to capture with my camera/computer today. A sweet mom from NC sent me this photo of her favorite guys and I just had to paint it. Love the "Pete and Re-Pete", father/son following in his footsteps,pure joy image - especially this time of year.


Also today I framed 6 paintings. This is my favorite way to frame them so I thought I'ld share...plus they looked sooooo good sitting on my mantle and again the picture doesnt do them justice...its so pretty in person - all the blues and greens, my favorite little Foo Dogs and vase too. If you are interested in any of these paintings and are looking for a nice outing head down to Tiverton 4Corners in RI and check them out at the Donovan Gallery - you can get a delicious icecream at Gray's ice cream across the street and there are lots of other great shops and galleries in the area - not to mention gorgeous scenery too!
Enjoy your weekend everyone!!

A Painting A Day by Diana Marshall said...

love the framed paintings, may I ask where you can get similar frames, I like the black around them. Is that part of the frame or are they on mount board?
It's difficult getting nice frames where I live.

Gray's Ice Cream. We used to take Sunday drives there as kids in the 60's. My Dad knew all the great places in RI to get ice cream cones!

Love your colors - so refreshing!
