Sometimes I do a blog post just because I want to have a note of something I've done or changed. This is one such post. I finally reframed two little pictures I purchased in Paris about 30 years ago. These were mementos of a special trip we took including our four kids and my mom. What an adventure! With no reservations anywhere. Just our EurRail passes and Europe on $20 a day book. We had a vague idea of an itinerary, but nothing set in stone. We started in Munich, Germany where the family met up with me as I was already there at a trade show for the company I worked for. Over the next two weeks, we went on to Switzerland and France, and ended up in England. Such great memories.
We purchased these paintings from a street artist outside the Jeu de Paume museum. We also bought a number of prints at the museums we visited. Upon returning home, we framed a lot of those at some expense. But I was never happy with how we framed the whimsical original oils. The frames I selected ended up making the paintings look dark and sunken.
