I've Been Framed

A while back, I talked of the photographer's framing device: looking over, around or past something in the foreground. Often times, the framing device object becomes as important or more important than the object in the background.

Here is a painting I did on the estate of some friends of mine in Naples, Florida. I painted this little mermaid statue many times, and often framed it with the banana leaves on the shore.

(I did worry about coral snakes, so before I would back up to study the pattern, I would always scatter the foliage on the ground with a stick!)

This painting once again refers to my love of statuary and fountains.
