This one, was a third attempt, after a smaller one, and a failure, but then I thought I had it...one of the largest I've painted in a long while, a half sheet (15 by 22), almost.
Still I wasn't sure, until I took it to be framed at Pirates Alley Framing in Britton by friend and fellow artist Theresa Henrichs Hurt, relying on her expertise with matting.
The frame and matting make the difference. I'm rarely proud or pleased with my work, but this one resonates.
