New work and framing flat screen televisions

I adore holiday weekends. Memorial Day weekend was great! I got so much done ... which included helping my husband Steve install additional insulation in our attic. (Oh, joy! LOL!) Several new art pieces are in the works and these two are now finished.

I'm getting into a good habit of updating my "sales blog" for these pieces. That Internet location is HERE. Doing this only takes a little more time. Time is something I value highly because ... well ... there's never enough of it. I wish every day would be spent hour after hour in my studio, like a holiday. That just isn't the case. I have a "day job" as a custom picture framer. Fortunately, I own the business with my husband so I can steal a few minutes here-and-there for my art. I actually like framing most of the time. Over the past twenty-seven years I've done some very challenging projects. Today, we were framing flat screen televisions ... which required the Dremel tool (to make an allowance for the little section that juts out at the bottom). These are going to a fancy new restaurant's bar area.
