I pick up old shabby chic frames now and then for vintage re-sale business I have. I had an old blue frame that already had a mass-produced print in it and I couldn't get that sucker off without tearing apart the backing, which I hoped to keep intact. Sooooo, long story short, I gessoed the picture that was already in the frame, left it in the frame, and painted over it. Voile! Today's painting!
This is a rather dusky dark painting of driftwood and shells. Because of the tight quarters, I've used a brush stroke here and there. Much darker than I set out to paint. Oh well, just envision strolling along the beach in the moonlight! Yes! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
