& I wanted to show you the piece I had commissioned from Paula Pertile... all framed up! You saw it last year... but it has taken me a year to finally have it framed. I wish I could find the post I made about it last year so you can see it better, but blogger search function is not working!
I went alllll out with the frame with the help of Creative Encounters in Keene. They do such a good job interpreting what you want and then making that vision look good.
I commissioned Paula to make a drawing of a fantasy art studio - like it was in a Harry Potter book. Paula went all out too and made such an amazing illustration. I have it hung right above where I work at my studio so I can see it while working. :-)
