Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

Art consists of limitation.
The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame.                                
~ Gilbert K. Chesterton

Delicately Detailed Frame (6" x 8") by Su D'Alessio

Su D'Alessio surprised me with this gift - a frame that she made from clay and then tangled with glaze.   For inspiration, she used the border I drew for the signage of last month's art show (pictured in the right column).
Although not captured in the photograph, Su managed to fit the frame with glass and a backing that enables it to stand.  I framed a picture of the group of us from last month's show.
She said that it was a "thank you", but I would argue that I am in the indebted one.
