Bluebirds FRAMED in Auricular Style

We're fast at work in the studios getting ready for our spring tour. So here's one we've just readied for the road, and we're pretty excited about it. Barrie created a shaped, carved, and gilt Auricular style frame for AB's painting, There'll Be Bluebirds. And we have a strong feeling that, since this frame has brought on so much personal excitement, Barrie'll be making more frames similar to it. Carving is definitely cool. Now click on the image to enlarge it. WOOHOO!

2013 Spring Show Schedule 2013

We have been notified by all but one of these shows that we've passed jury and been accepted. We suspect that the one we've not heard from yet will put us in the show. So we're going ahead and posting our tour schedule, and it's one that's chock full of Florida locations where we've shown before as well as two new venues at Cedar Key and Sanford. Florida really is the art show mecca, y'all, and we love the shows there.

We're also looking forward to returning to Hilton Head Island for our third time at that venue, which is sponsored by Coastal Discovery Museum in a beautiful setting amidst the live oak trees. So come out and see at a show or two. WOOHOO!
