~Pears & Grapes~

I  just purchased this pretty little fruit painting at a shop I just found on Etsy. It's only 6x6. This women has such pretty paintings her site is Torrie Smiley Original Works of Art. She has a lot of fruit paintings but I also spotted the cutest birds nest painting that I might just have to go back and ck out again! I took the painting to Hobby Lobby and had a custom frame made for it. I can't wait for it to come in so I can show you where it's new home is going to be. I was surprised at how reasonable HL custom frames were. $25 for a 6x6  frame that has a lot of detail and they frame it for you for free!



 Taking a little break for a few days, we are going away with the kids. Have a great weekend!!

I love your painting. It is wonderful, and I can't wait to see the frame. I just had a painting framed there also, I was amazed at how beautiful a job they do and yes if you buy the frame, framing is free. Isn't that super. Have fun on your trip. Hugs, Marty

Very pretty. I just bought one of Janet Hill's prints off of Etsy. Took it to Hobby Lobby and they did their magic. :)

Just went and looked at her artwork. It's gorgeous. Etsy is just the best place to admire artistic people.
