Shiver me timbers all done!!!

Even the frame is done! It took me a while... originally the frame suppose to be blue with withe snowflakes. Well, it didn't turn out that way. This was my first attempt to painting and my snowflakes looked more like bird droppings than anything else. So I put some of the white paint, add a little blue, didn't mix very well (so I can get that smudgy look) and voila! I've got a blizzard looking frame (big smile).



Now I'm finishing my piece for a froggy exchange (Pictures are coming later, after recipient receives it -  I don`t want to spoil surprise) and I will work on my Guardian Angel I think...


So long friends,
