Framing

This week I framed my paint-by-numbers favorites for the sitting room. There's something about uniform frames (even the cheap wood ones from Hobby Lobby) and a mat and some glass that just lends authority.



I kept buying the wrong things though. It took about four trips to the store to get three things on the wall. I hope it's not just me that does that.


So, one painting on the left and two on the right. I'm definitely waiting for the fourth picture to cross my path one of these days. I love these portrayals of Jesus. They may not be fine art, but they are, I think, reverent.

The paintings are beautiful, fine art or not. And the repeated trips to the store are worth it - the frames gave good focus to the pictures. Congratulations!

They look great like that, and I see you still have your branch with the chandelier droplets - the whole thing looks very nice.

I so agree with you. There can be such beauty in humble things and reverence in simplicity.

I love the way they look when framed!

Oh, yes... been there. I have some kind of mat ADD or something.

I've long admired these old paint-by-numbers paintings, and what a great idea to have a collection focusing on Jesus! (And I love Hobby Lobby, too!)
