I said a while back that I was going to have a look at the sales blog of one of the followers of my blog, Maree Clarkson, who is an artist in South Africa, and hoped to buy one of her works. I finally got around to that and ordered one of her watercolors. I was very excited to receive it and have been looking for a good frame for it. I actually wanted something much larger with a mat and all, but then I realized that if I put it in a larger frame, it wouldn't look right hanging in the spot that I bought it for, which is by my little workspace off my kitchen. So, I settle for the smaller frame and it does look very nice in this spot.
Isn't it lovely?
Later: I looked it up, "artiste" - an artistic or creative person.
