I think I might have finished this portrait
except for choosing a frame
|I am debating if I will even put this behind glass!|
|Sweet little face with strong chin!|
I have shown a lot of different options that could happen with this portrait with regard to the framing. I feel after much deliberation, that the gold frame looks the best. I know that some of you disagree, but I had an overwhelming positive response to this gold-leafed frame!(ABOVE)
Well here she is! I am very pleased with how she turned out. The method that I used was my Retrieved Wallpaper technique. This is also the method that was used to paint my Central Park scene (Refer to last year).
|Love the splash of color and all the crazy cracks!|
|Frame Number 1 (I think this is a little heavy and dark…)|
Frame No. 1
|I like this one, but guess what, it doesn't fit. I would have to pay someone to 'doctor' the size. Sometimes this doesn't look right…|
Frame No. 2
|Frame No. 3|
The FIFTH option is This! I would have to cup the bottom of her dress off to accommodate this frame.
|I think that I like this red frame…|
