Morning Glory

This painting I finished just a couple of months ago back when the Morning Glories were in full bloom down by the lakefront. Ahhh....the sun and flowers! Soon, I keep telling myself, soon.

This painting called for a totally different style of frame because I wanted the edge of the canvas, which is painted an orange similar to the present's cast shadow, to be seen. I love using these 'floater' style frames just for this purpose.

Another wonderful piece framed...I like the floating frame it compliments your wonderful package. What's inside that one???

Karen, great choice. And what a wonderful effect. I saw a few of these floater frames at the L.A. Art Show on the contemporary works. You have good taste, lady.

I *love* this one in a floater frame! With the sides showing, it's probably got an almost 3-D effect. What beautiful colors in this painting!

Thank you Jason! I was worried I might be boring and repetative by re-posting these paintings.

Cheryl I love that you are thinking about the inside!

Thank you sooo much Silvina and Kathryn, I appreciate your votes of confidence!
