Here is my rendition of fuchsia flower. Sorry the mat covered the upper part of painting. If I would have lowered the painting to show the upper part, it would have look funny in the frame. Any comments and critiques are welcome. This was a very intense lesson. Now I'll go to Foxglove.

Doina.....WONDERFUL!!!!          :clap:   It's beautiful. I love the framing...really brings out the picture. Well done.
Natalie....your painting is awesome, as usual, and is so beautiful.
This is a great lesson.  I've watched the video a few times and read the pdf a few.  I think I can start soon.

Doina,

You did well on the fushcia painting.   Looks so dressed up when it's in the frame.

C'mon, Retta, time to start yours.

Now that's what I like to see.  Awesome job Doina, and your framing looks good too.   Off white mats are really a safe way to go.  Learned this from a decorator who does interior design for President George Bush.  My family business has done the framing for Laura and George since they were in the Governor Mansion in Austin.  And continues to do so since he retired here in Dallas.

Wow, that sounds pretty exciting, Robin.  You are framing George Bush!  Oh, sorry, you are framing FOR George Bush.
