Three Quickies in the Gallery

About a week ago I promised you a picture of the new paintings we received from Sarah Rogers.  Finally, here they are.  Ruby and Rufous.  They are 8x8 watercolor panels and $600 each.

Pretty sweet, eh?  We wanted to hang these in the window but suddenly the days have gotten sunny, and although our front window is double paned and Low-E, the paintings are watercolors so ixnay on the window idea.  We also got a very sweet little painting from Tabby Ivy this week; Derek just built the frame for it today and we can't wait to put it out in the gallery.

For the first time in over 13 years we have grouped a bunch of small paintings together on the wall.  Normally we have "blocks" of pieces by the same artist, but we wanted to showcase these little jewels together.  As the sign says, "Good things come in small packages."

Last but not least for today, we got some wickedly cool photo frames from our friends at Bella Moulding in Chicago!  The front and back are made of clear acrylic and they are held together with four small magnets.    They hold a 4x6 photo and are so hip they will fit in any decor.

We have a lot going on in the framing department this week as well, including seven or eight prints for the designer down the street, Indonesian stick puppets, a print from Ethiopia, a map of Jamaica and the largest Rothko print I have ever seen.  There is a fairy, some tipis, two mirrors and a chalk pastel portrait.  We hope to post pictures of some of the more interesting framing projects soon.
