Wasn't sure where to post this.  I took my first two paintings to the framing shop(in the wood shop I work in) and framed them.  Pictures taken on wall and some reflection is showing, but you can still get an idea of what they look like. :)

Oh wow! They look amazing in the frames. That Tulip is wonderful and very professional. Thanks for showing us these and inspiring us.  :clap:

 :blush: Thank you, Gloria, Rick and Tony.  I am pretty pleased with how they look framed.  I get a really good deal on my framing material since I am a volunteer at the woodshop!  (I know you don't need to glass paintings, but I did with these.)  The frame, double mats and glass only cost me about $20.00 each!!!

Hey Bodine,

Love the tulip. Beautiful color. And the frame sets it off.  O0

Thank you, Ella and Nina.  I am excited about what Nolan was able to teach me in such a short time.  A long way to go, but definitely enjoying getting there! :)
