"Pretties in a Ball Jar"

I painted a pretty image I saw on White on Rice Couple blog.  You can see the image here.
I need to decide how to frame it.

  1. Oh my goodness Ricki, it's gorgeous! I love it!

  2. This is beautiful! Perfection in a jar.

  3. Wow! That is so gorgeous! You are so talented my friend!

  4. You are so talented!!! This is gorgeous!

  5. OUTRAGEOUSLY GORGEOUS!!!!! You are so awesome!!!!! so sorry i have not been around -- I promise to be around more soon! : ) and no ... you don't have to strain the vanilla extract : ) and leave the beans in there till you are done : ) hugs...

  6. You are so talented! I've never been much of an artist, so I really appreciate that talent in others.

  7. Ricki Jill you are so talented!
    This is one of my favorites you have shown.

  8. Ricki Jil, Your painting is beautiful. The roses and the jar are perfect. The babies breath looks dimensional. Do you use oil or acrylic? As for how to frame if what we see is the entire piece I'm thinking you shouldn't frame at all rather display it on an easel if it's on a stretched canvas. Joyous Wishes, Linda

  9. Oh, it's beautiful! I love how soft it I could snuggle the painting! :)

  10. Ricki Jill, this is absolutely beautiful. You are very talented. I would think it is very difficult to paint a clear glass jar with water. This looks so realistic. Bravo!

  11. Ricki Jill, I had a few extra minutes so I took them to look around your blog. I just had to compliment you on this beautiful painting. You are so blessed to have this wonderful talent that surely comes from God. I don't like to second guess His wisdom but I wish that same artistic talent had come my way too. (smiles). The roses are exquisite and the blue jar is unbelievably realistic. I love it!! ---------- Shannon

  12. Oh, wow! That is gorgeous! You are so talented. It gives such a wonderful feeling when looking at the painting.

  13. Oh My!!! I love it. You did an awesome job on the painting.
