This morning I cleaned up the rosemary painting--erasing pencil and scraping out little spots of paint, and probably cat food. I drew in a guide line and signed my work. Packaged it up as best I could.
I couldn't help but sport a huge smile all the way to Bridgewater Art and Custom Framing. I walked in to jazz in the background and a fine welcome from proprietor Candance Cotterman. She walked me through the selection process, limited by botanical presentation standards. I selected a rather plain gold frame with a slightly off white mat. I'll be getting a call for pickup sometime next week.
It's hard to describe my over the top feeling. My first professional framing for my first show participation. Wow! :-)
