Handmade Frames for My Original Oil Paintings

Morning Glories, Mare Island
This post is only half of my paintings that are framed and ready for the upcoming art show, Art on the Vine, held at Backroad Vines in Fairfield, 2221 Julian Lane, June 3 and 4, 2017 and for the new art gallery opening in Benicia that I'm going in, The Little Art Shop, opening June 3, 2017.

Mike has been hard at work making the frames and I hand painted them and did the gilding by hand, too. I love how they turned out, he did a beautiful job.

Below each photo is the title of the painting, if you click on that, it'll take you to the page the painting is listed on our Etsy shop, Honey's Treasures.

I'll be posting the other half of the framed paintings as soon as I paint them and we get them into place with wire on the back.

#39 Daily Painting - Showing Frame

This is a potted plant that I painted plein air in Locke, CA, on a bright sunny day. It was a scraggly little plant in a clay pot with pitiful pink flowers. I set my easel and in no time set to painting.

Mike made the frame for me and I painted it Cottage White and added gold leaf trim along the inside edge. I like how it turned out. In fact, I have a big art show coming up June 3 and 4 at Backroad Vines in Fairfield. I'll be there doing some plein air painting and selling my latest paintings.

Come on out if you're local, listen to some music, have some wine and enjoy the art vendors. Be sure to pop by my booth to say hello! I might post again when it gets closer to June but just in case, put it on your calendar. I'll have my easel and will most likely be in my paint clothes working on some view of the vineyards. The painting shown on the postcard above is mine and I should have it with me for sale if it doesn't sell before then. lol
