When I placed this painting over the mantle, I liked it, but I didn't like it, like it. Do you ever do that? The frame just seemed so heavy and dark so I removed it.
It feels like a completely different painting now with that big dark frame removed. Eventually the painting will be hung on the wall (which will take all of one minute, but I will manage to put it off for three weeks), but for now...love it. Sometimes the frame makes all the difference, just not in the way you would expect. Not to worry about the homeless frame....you know how we are with those...there is always something we can use them for.
