The Ocean at St. Ives Bay...

I have long admired a blog of a lovely lady (Lesley) in St. Ives (I believe I came across her on Carolyn's blog) - who is not only a gallery owner, but an amazingly talented painter.

Sea Blue Sky Abstracts blog has been a favorite haunt of mine for while. I visit there at least a few times a week to indulge my passion for the sea - and all things beautiful in shades of blues and neutrals which seem to be Lesley's trademark.

Lesley sent me this beautiful painting that she painted that I am so excited and honored to own. I am working on something to send her in return for this wonderful gift.

I have been diligently looking for frames for both this piece, and the earlier piece (on global warming) that you may remember, that my dear friend Carolyn sent me. I'm afraid that to do these two pieces justice, I need no ordinary frame. Therefore, my quest continues. I am seriously considering putting them on my Christmas list - as it looks like frames regal enough to hold both of these pieces will have a regal price tag attached!!


In the meantime, both Global Warming and St. Ives Beay are both securely and lovingly placed under a sheet of glass in my studio so that Sabrina and I can enjoy them until Santa comes!

Now go breathe in some fresh, crisp St. Ives air and visit Lesley's world of paint and brush.

These are beautiful, and you are very lucky to own them. I couldn't tell you where to look for frames. I guess scour the internet.
