pastel, 8" x 10"
This hummingbird taught me a little something about finishing and framing art. I had declared this
piece done so I signed it, shot a quick photo and framed it.
I hung it on the wall to admire and over the course of a couple of days it sort of
disappeared. I mean, it was almost non-noticiable. It's in a heavy plein air silver frame but
I am not sure it was the frame's fault.
I just wasn't happy so I laboriously de-framed the little hummer and took
him back to the easel.
Here's the re-do.
Funny thing: while this piece now looks great back in the frame and on the wall; it
really looks rather garish in the photo.
Anyone else ever have this conundrum?
Photos do lie.
