    Re: PA SHOW - DETAILS

    Thanks Brian. I just finished it today. (See that thread for updated pics) So I need to find a mat and frame to go with it. Does anyone have a suggestion for what frame to use? What color mat, what color wood...You guys will be bidding on it so let me know what you want to see :) Thanks

    Nina, that is beautiful! Probably my favorite of the works you have posted. Very, very nice.

    Wormy Chestnut or barn wood make nice frames, but I'm not much help with matting. I have one of my pencil drawings framed with a mottled pale green and gold and it looks good. Maybe you should leave it up to the framer?

    Barn wood sounds nice. Maybe beige or brown for the mat..Not sure yet

    I mounted my deer last night. Just a regular shoulder mount, nothing fancy.
    Also started my drawing for the wildlife art division.

    That's because your too busy eating " " like fat kid eats chocolate cake!

    I've been doing finish work all afternoon. Every time I get started, someone shows up. I'm thinking of hanging dark curtains over the windows and closing for a few days.
