Getting into the swing of it

Having finally got back into the studio on Tuesday. I was really keen to get going again on Wednesday morning. I wanted to get cracking on paintings that I'd been thinking of doing for a while.
So, after messing around in the kitchen, making numerous cups of coffee, I couldn't delay the move through to the studio any more. I'm sure all the artists reading this will know what I mean. Once in there 'wild horses.....'  and all that.

This is the first picture of the day

Thursday, and today I have been going through all my old frames.
 I have, over the years played around with different colours and mouldings. Finally, I found what I was looking for. The idea being that it would be my signature frame. Unfortunately a lot of artists seem to be using the same now so, time for a change. 
I'm trying a dark grey and a black frame and I'm amazed at the difference it can make to a painting. I shall be taking some into one of my galleries at the weekend so, it will be interesting to see the reaction.
