in their mexican frames

When we went to Mexico a couple of years ago I had 4 tin frames made. These are the smaller ones.

I have found it hard to make just the right painting to go in them; a painting of a chihuahua on a Mexican tiled floor was too fussy and other sketches were wrong in scale. I think these paintings of coral suit the frame and feel just right.

A painting done from some little sketches and prompted into paint and a title by our elder daughter’s engagement yesterday.  It would suit a tin frame so may be one to scale up for the larger frames.
