And here's Mark Hopkins framed! My framer did an amazing job finding a frame to coordinate with the 1926 decor of the Hotel.

 I'm taking him and Mr. Smith on Sunday to the person at the hotel - we're meeting halfway between SF and Sac. Unfortunately, they're not going to do an unveiling ceremony, which makes me sad. But I think I'll invite my friends to meet me at the hotel in Dec, I'll bring a bottle of champagne and I'll organize my own celebration!!
Cheers,
Sharon

 :thankyou: so much Rick and Kathy!! I’m really happy with how the frame makes the painting look even more distinguished. And what a lovely compliment Rick! I really appreciate that. I see so many PB members improving by leaps and bounds daily!

Thanks Val and Mea! I’m glad I’ve learned to just trust my framer and let him do what he does best!

That frame is beautiful, and yes, Sharon, you inspire me, and I suspect, everyone else on PB. You are a real star.

You're so sweet, Linley - thank you! And I wouldn't be an artist without the teachings and support of PB!

 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:  Sharon, absolutely magnificent framed.  You have done outstanding portraits of the two gentlemen and the Hotelier should be so pleased. I have said it before and I say it again, we are so very proud of you.
