Framing pictures

It's never hard to know which pictures to frame. When everything goes well a picture simply declares itself as wonderful, exciting and valuable! However what gives a picture this special quality is still a mystery to me... I think I always try my best but so many of my attempts just don't spark into life. Putting a pleasing drawing into a frame turns it into an object that someone will want to live with. Framing helps me to see my own efforts as real achievements and I'm usually over-enthusiastic about the results! I'm incredibly pleased with the outcome of this watercolour drawing. It took me about 4 hours to frame, much longer than it took me to paint! Right now I think it'll be the star of the show...
