Hand Painting a Frame Specifically for a Painting

Painted frame detail

"Hat Lady With Red Flowers",  5" x 7",  oil on panel

I wanted to show you how I finished off this Hat Lady painting 
by hand-painting it's frame. Although a frame always 
becomes part of the finished artwork, I feel it is even more so 
in this instance an integral part, since it was hand-painted by me.

Hi Mona, This looks luscious! The frame looks great, tying it all together. I love how everything jumps, so 3D! Another beauty!

Thanks Barbara! Believe it or not the frame took almost as long to paint as the painting, but glad to know the results are pleasing, and I liked how it came out also.
