SALE: Miniature art gold frames x2.

Mini art frames for sale oval opening gold wood carved Dreamy Papers
I bought far too many of these many years ago when I was thinking of opening a gallery based on small format  and miniature artworks. And to enter miniature art shows. These frames have never been used. So they are new. My current situation is where I need to downsize drastically.
The oval opening is for 2.5x3" it says, but not sure of the accuracy of that. The frames exterior dimensions are 4 3/8 x 4 1/8" approximately. And the width of the frame is approximately 3/8" thick.
That thickness does NOT include the easel back. Backed with black paper. I have successfully removed the easel back, and covered it with paper to enter my paintings in miniature art society exhibitions. They appear to be a light-weight wood, so easy to add screws or hanging ring to the back to comply with show rules.
The gold finish is a very bold gold under some light, it is crackled/antiqued somewhat, but muted. It is not an all-over flat gold finish. The cold is definitely metallic in appearance. The focus would be on the art, not on the frame. I do love these. They are NOT a matching pair.

Buy securely through PayPal (button below).
Both for $13.00 USD

Sorry, this listing is for continental US buyers only.
If you're located somewhere else, please contact me and maybe something can be arranged. I've been burned by USPS rates for things going outside continental US, lately. Thank you.

A Tribute To Our Four-Footed Friend. Wyatt.

Yesterday took an unexpected turn of events. Although Wyatt has had medical 'issues' since around Christmas, this really broad-sided us.
What was just a supposedly 'minor' vet visit for skin condition, expanded into an Xray with very unwelcome news, with a combination of 'issues'.
So, somewhere, Wyatt is now flying free and in peace. Much loved. And very much missed.
Thank you Wyatt, for all you gave to us.
But unfortunately, for now, I'm heartbroken.

Fuchsia Lore - gallery of my fuchsia art and creations NEW - on my website.

I reconnected with some Fuchsia friends of mine, so set up a page on my website that covers my fuchsia art creations.

Illustrations, art, fuchsia lore gifts, paintings, collages, and even rubber stamp designs I've done. 

 - hope you'll check out my work. Special requests welcome.

At one stage I had 300 named varieties of fuchsias and belonged to the Australian Fuchsia Society.

Another in my garden series - "A Zen Moment" White Cat and Buddah in sunlit garden.

To be found on eBay:

"A Zen Moment"
ORIGINAL ACEO pen & wash (watercolor) painting on top of an old 1888 ledger paper
(backed with acid-free cardstock).

ACEO (Art Cards, Editions & Originals), always 2.5x3.5"!
SFA - Small Format Art (nothing over 14")

"Original unique artwork. I love and collect old papers, but there are so many wonderful things to do with them.
This is a genuine 1887 handwritten ledger page, backed with acid-free cardstock.
Some of the original handwriting appears on the vintage paper.
On top I've done some pen and wash paintings/sketches from my photos of gardens and other delights.
One of the things I admire about cats is their ability to have 'zen' moments in a slice of sunshine.
But this one really was all about the setting. Lovely garden greenery, mossy steps, all sunlit.
Shared with a stunning Buddha. Anyone's ideal zen moment, I'm sure.
I've used white gesso under some of the painting - as this helps to make the colors 'pop' a little more.
This is the same type of sketching used in art journals, urban sketches, and travel diaries.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I have in discovering these wonderful gardens, and creating these little paintings.
Location: Medford, Oregon."
