Still Going...

OK, so this project has turned into something grander! I finished the painting by adding some last minute compositional enhancements, otherwise known as waves.

As some of you might already know, I am engaged now to a very talented and super creative, wonderfully rounded artist, Roberto Romo Lopez. YAY! Our journey has been a grand one and our union always manifests itself in our art projects. I wanted to make a frame to finish off my sister's gift. He heard my idea and said what he always says with a gleam in his eyes, "I'll help you. It'll come out NICE!"

I envisioned a funky Mexican metal frame very similar to papel picado. Alone I would have made a GOOD frame. But with his help, together we are making a GREAT frame. Here is our process.....
