<shaking head sadly>....Another 36x36" painter bites the dust! Clearly you are an addict already, Helen. :D

These make such a charming series. I love the frames, and they suit the paintings so well! I haven't done any oval formats yet, but you're inspiring me to give them a go. Let us know how the sales go of these minis. I'll bet they'll be swept off the shelves in no time.

Thanks you guys! :D heehee.. yep, I thought I was about to quit doing the minis, but shrugged to myself and said "What have you got to lose? A teeny bit of board? Just paint and don't worry so much!"

I love these frames. I'm definitely getting spoiled with them! I only have 2 left, and will have to start hunting again! :eek:

Oh, Helen...once again you've achieved two beautiful pieces. I really like the frames you've used..they really set your work off well. I must say I like the Tuscan concept..so very colorful!!

These Tuscans are marvelous!!! Well done!!! :clap: ... and where did you find those terrific frames? They're ideal for oval miniatures!!!
I've tried to slow myself down doing minis! Started 2 large paintings, and shelved them for a while...and went back to the minis! They are definately an addiction....(but a pleasant and enjoyable one) LOL :D Folks tell me they sell well at shows. And am planning on being in a show with about 25 framed miniatures in September, so we'll see!!! :)
