My dad outdid himself again with this beautiful frame for my drawing “Anna” (anti-reflection glass and all!).  Check out our etsy shop to see the frames we offer, made and shipped from my dad’s wood-shop. https://www.etsy.com/shop/livuska?ref=si_shop

Spring break!!!  It’s time to look back at paintings completed recently, this is one of them, a copy after Sargent.  I used a very limited palette, 3 primary colors and white. And it worked.
