Safety Ravens


I finished my watercolor painting of Safety Ravens and got it framed yesterday. The framing is always more expensive than I anticipate. Next time I really need to go pick a pre-made frame and then paint the picture to fit it, instead of having to have it custom framed because I painted it in a weird size. I've done this before and you'd think I'd learn, but so far it hasn't sunk in!

I plan to give it to Hal tomorrow at a breakfast we are holding in his honor.

This is wonderful1 The detail on the ravens is superb. And your friend is right, you can trim some ectra paper first to make it fir into a 'standard" size. Still, it's awesome!
