The First Treasure
Back in September you will remember my pleasure at receiving The Gift of the Four Treasures from a special friend. My first ink painting using the gift I titled The First Treasure and today it was time to mat and frame it ready to give it to her as the gift that was promised.
Wearing an old pair of black leather gloves to protect my hands as I cleaned the glass together with the anticipation of seeing the framed image hanging on the studio wall are part of a familiar and welcome ritual that I always look forward to.
With thirty new pristine mats ready to go, lots more framing to come.P.S. For this week’s Discover Challenge: One, Two, Three, the challenge from Krista to photographers and artists is to create in sets of three, working in triptychs to capture a subject in evolution. I hope this triptych of the three photographs matting, framing, and hanging The First Treasure captures the spirit of the Krista’s challenge.
