I’m still working on that other project and it looks like it’s going to take a lot longer than I thought. It’s been a case of paint….gesso over it….paint again. The trials and tribulations of an artist!
Meanwhile, I’ve added a few more “Little Debbie’s”, you know….those very affordable paintings under 5×7. “Angel Holding Flowers” is the newest.
I pick up a lot of vintage and unloved smaller frames at estate sales. That’s where most all of the frames used in “Little Debbie’s” are born. With each frame, I attempt to paint something that ‘fits’ that frame. Above, it is a silver (Yes. I know. It looks like gold, but it’s not) metal frame.
I found the vintage frame below at a thrift store. It is a heavy metal frame, made in Italy, from the 1950’s. I loved the frame, but not the color, so I painted it blue. The glass is concave which, in my mind, give it an underwater look. I think the painting of the Mahi Mahi is a perfect fit. This is NOT a Little Debbie, even though you will find it on the Little Debbie page. It is approximately 8×13, unframed. It is on the Little Debbie page because it is only sold framed and there will not be any reprints made. Because of the nature of the glass, this must be picked up and cannot be shipped.
