BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS, FANTASTIC, AWESOME, and all the rest of the words that describe something so unique. You did an excellent job. Wow, a contract with the Arts Council, you must be so thrilled. Please explain more, what, where, how - will you paint in town hall windows?, murals in the city?

May I suggest a black frame. If you chose a Glossy Black that would give you the shine you want. And you're right, the shimmer from the camera flash makes it look like there is moonlight shining down on the mountains.

P.S. How did you do selling your painted windows at the craft fair you spoke of?

I never made the craft fair, my dad fell ill and passed away so I was busy with him....how i got the arts council contract, my hair dresser saw my work and told the arts council in mebane nc about my work...

I do sell to two different stores in nj...so far just in the stores Ive sold 7 paintings....I was surprised the first one sold for 80.00...(I sell to the store for 45.00) and now I was asked to help a woman design her bedroom in the shabby chic/ french country look...and I will be painting a mural for a contractor in the spring...so far things are looking good....oh and the other thing Im doing is adding quilts to my windows they look so cute...I hope these take off also since it takes no time to make lol

Mojo, I'm so very sorry to hear about your Dad, please know you have my deepest condolences.

Thanks for getting back to me about the Arts Council. My sis decorates her home French Country and it is so beautiful, all the roosters, floral, etc. Her primary colors are browns/dark reds/golds. In one area of her dining room she has a black baker's rack with a gorgeous display of dishes (not plates/cups) and on one of the shelves she has a book holder with a cookbook open to a desert dish. It is just so ingenious.

So, good luck to you in designing the bedroom and the mural painting. I've seen the quilts behind the glass on mirrors, so very pretty.

Sal
