      Great News for miniature artists!!!! In support of IGMA and the world of fine miniatures,  Micro-Mark the small tool specialists, have offered IGMA a 10% discount on all their purchases.  Buyer gets 10% off all purchases and in support of the Guild Micro-Mark will donate 5% of your purchased price to IGMA Be sure to enter Promo code IGMASAVE16 www.micromark.com Can be used on sale merchandise, but cannot be combined with another offer.  For example if an item is in the close-out section on the Micromark website, the discount will apply.

Yes. I’m afraid so too, but I wouldn’t have tried otherwise because it’s outside of my comfort zone.  I just needed it so I had no other avenue.

I’m including a picture of the actual frame on the original painting- which I saw in 2016.

I like your more impressionistic frame better than the full size one. Suits the painting more.

This isn’t complete.  I’m happy with progress, but going to continue work on the frame. I’ve struggled a bit with color.  I got it partly right but the darker shades keep eluding me.  But I thought I’d show that not everything goes to plan.  I also frankly made the frame too wide compared to the original- so it overwhelms the painting, but this is part of the learning curve I guess. I will post further.  I don’t think of it as being hypercritical but rather to be honest with myself, because I would suppose that everyone who makes miniatures is the same. You are always aiming for the perfection.  Falling short is human, but we still aim for that ideal, which I’m well aware can’t fully be achieved.
