a two way street

This was a nice little surprise in my mail box today. I sold this drawing earlier in the year. It was destined for a little girl's bedroom wall on the other side of the world to me. How great does it look all mounted and framed? I would never have considered such vibrant colours or patterned mounts ('matts' in the US?). I probably would have gone with white. These photos make me totally reconsider how I'll frame my drawings in the future. I think it looks fabulous.

Do you have any of photos of my drawings in your homes? I'd love to gather some together for a future post.

Thanks, Oli, for these lovely pics.

those are nice photos and great to see your work matted like that. I guess another perspective is always refreshing.

love the matting on the pic, really picks up the colors of the artwork. don't particularly like the frame though, it's kind of heavy for the subject matter. really like Ryan's pic in the kitchen. don't usually like monochromatic, but it really works here. how fun to see your artwork, Andrea, when it's in someone else's home, eh?

happy holidays to you all ;)

I've learnt over recent years that the framing and mounting of artwork can change everything but I'm really struggling to find a good picture framer in my area who can do it for me. I think I'm going to bully hubby into learning so he can do it for me. Your work looks great btw really fun and joyful
