Dolphin Trio: Third Post - Framed

Here is the final framed piece: Dolphin Trio.

I went with a blue top mat and a dark burgundy bottom mat in hopes of bringing out some of the color in the reef, it looks black in the picture, but believe me, it's burgundy   I had a frame picked out.  It was white like this one, but it had a cool ripple pattern around it.  Unfortunately it was a discontinued molding that they had never taken off the wall.  I was bummed, it would have looked even better in that frame.  At least I think it would have.

My mother is actually going to keep it and put it in her "blue" bedroom where she has a painting of dolphins I did when I was in high school.  I don't mind, I don't have much wall space.  My family keeps telling me I'm going to need to move to a bigger place just to get more walls to hang all my pictures.  I may need to use Jo's suggestion of rotating pictures.

I know I had started this blog as a way to get me working on stuff, but the problem is it's actually working!  I've had more finishes in the past year and two months than I had in the previous 5 years.  I could focus more on my flowers and crocheting, but then I'll round out of shelf and counter space.  So many fun things to do, so little room to display.

I'm sure you're more interested in what I've been working on instead of seeing old completes again.  But never fear I will have an update soon.  It may be surprising to see what I've actually been working on.  it surprised me.  Plus I need to start working on a new baby blanket for nephew #2, that yarn will arrive next week, and that should take a little bit of my time, but I have until mid November to finish that, but I would like to finish it by the end of summer.  It's the only project with a hard deadline, until I start working on Christmas gifts.  I really should start working on those soon.
