dress it up

i've put a couple of prints up in my shop matted & framed baby!  they just look so much better all dolled up in a frame.  this 'Duchess' print is 4x6 in a 5x7 frame.

art is super hard to sell and with this crazy economy it's even harder.  i'm determined to push on though, i like doing it (have to do it really, i'm just so content when i'm in my own world of paints and inks and the like).  i would love to go on a little art retreat, get away from the familiar and wander & explore.  it's a little chilly here for a wander (minus 23 celcius yesterday) but if i bundle up i'm sure all will be well.  i just need to get a pair of gloves to cut the fingers off of so i can manage the pencil/pen/paint brush.  see, i'm a mitten girl and i think they will prove to be slightly cumbersome when field painting/sketching.

oh well, off to spill onto a blank canvas.
