More of Monet-Grace

Grace's Landscape Portrait

Yet another frame-worthy piece that Grace did at art camp a few weeks back. This one was much smaller and she finished it in the 2 hour time period of her class. It was based on one of Monet's landscape portraits. I thought it was....perfect.

So, off I go to get it (and the other big one she did) framed. Naturally, my 'champagne taste on a kool-aid budget' kicked in (as it always does) and for the large portrait, I picked one of the most expensive custom frames they had. Ugh! But it's well worth it, so I ordered the work done. This little frame, however, was pre-made and on discount, so I snagged it for a nifty $27.
Not bad!
But I just laughed....it never fails. I always fall in love with the most expensive things. I remember buying a G. Harvey print for my husband for Christmas a few years ago. It was huge. So I toted it down to a framing store in Dallas and after carefully choosing the frame and matte, the foreign lady behind the counter said, "Tsk, Tsk....you expensive taste lady!"

I already knew that.
After all, that IS why I got into the teaching profession.

You can make prints and sell them like the big artists. Make sure they are numbered, but not too many.
;)
