Latest Miniatures Framed

"After the Davidson College Graduation", 4 5/8" x 3 3/8", egg tempera on panel in black lacquer frame

"Self Portrait at 34", 3 3/4" x 3 3/8", egg tempera on Kelmscott vellum in a gilded wood oval frame

And here are the two most recent minis framed. The gloss of the black lacquer is hard to capture in a scan, but it makes for a richer black wood to surround "After the Graduation".

These both look superb in their frames Mona. Love the little girl and the sunlight on the grass and that is a super self portrait!

They both look great!! The red matte and black frame work perfect with your painting. And your portrait in gold frame is just stunning!
