Framing



This sketch of Gravagna is, as far as I can recall, the first oil painting I've taken the effort to have framed. Certainly the first of my own paintings that I've hung in my home. Every time I look at it I am struck by what a difference a nice frame makes for a picture.

And to that end, Anna framed the little picture I did of Angelica as Santa Lucia:



Here's a picture I finished this week of St. Christopher. I guess this one goes out to my Nephew Christopher!




And to wrap up this post, my internet friend Eric Orchard, who is a very talented illustrator in his own right, has started a New Retro Futuristic Blog where he has somehow managed to snag an interview with... Mike Mignola?!? Wh..? How did he do that?

It's interesting how framing really does add something extra to a painting.

The Santa Lucia is lovely as well!

By the way, I added a dude named Scott C to the links list. He draws some great pictures.
