My daughter is an artist and it is nothing unusual to get a request to make a custom picture frame. A few months ago she sent me an email asking for a certain size and style of picture frame, which of course I provided. The surprise was that this frame was for the picture she painted to give me for Christmas! Now I have an original oil painting with an original custom made frame!

Fantastic present….............. I love that painting myself. Great job on the frame. Didn’t even know you was building your own present. How neat.

stunning and stunning… and added bonus is the “father daughter” partnership. I hope the story gets written down and attached to the back of this precious piece of art.

NICE
