Day 6 – Paint ‘n Frame

paintings in mats

Another productive day. I spent most of the morning working on paintings. Several are in progress and soon to be finished.

This afternoon, I worked on putting some of the completed ones into their mats. They look so nice that way!

I picked up a dozen mats yesterday, so I have much work to do!

I also tried out my new paints on a 16×20 canvas. These are colors I haven’t bought before, so it was fun fun fun to play! The colors are wonderful. The violet is gorgeous but a bit strong, so I’m learning to use it sparingly.

unfinished painting, 16x20 inches, life needs artAll in all, a darn good day.

Now I’m off to my brother’s house for homemade chili and cornbread. Yum!

    Thanks, Michelle and Bobbi! I’m glad you stopped by.

    It’s amazing how a simply white mat can make any artwork look finished. I just love putting them together.
