custom framed under museum glass
matted in 12" x 16" acid-free white matboard
Inspired by a tiny black and white snapshot from my grandmother's album, circa 1927, here three generations of beauties share a summer moment in a cold Texas stream. It's a scene that most anyone can relate to-- languid shade beneath willows, splashes from the little girl, with gently flowing water. The flirtatious young mother in red offers a smile as the photographer intrudes briefly on the ladies' time out for summer play.
This richly colored original watercolor painting measures 9" x 12" on heavy, acid-free paper and is matted in white acid free board and framed under non-reflective museum glass. Framed, the outer dimensions are 17" x 21".

"Beauties Bathing" is framed under non-reflective museum glass in a rubbed mahogany wood molding that echoes the darks of the water.
The simple frame lends itself to both traditional and contemporary settings, and the ivory mat keeps things from looking too stark.
