After I posted the photo of my newly framed painting I realized that it didn't look that big.
It's amazing how deceptive photos can be.
So from now on, where appropriate, I'm going to include a point of reference like a penny, a ruler or even a body to give my photos a better perspective.
Here is that photo again but this time I asked my 5'6" daughter to stand in front of the fireplace.
This is a whole new area of where I can spend more money. Not sure I want to go there.
