My sister is a school teacher and I wanted to painted her something special that she could always treasure. I can begin to describe the look of surprise on her face when she saw the painting. She was so please with it. She loved it. I did not get it framed. My sister took the painting and had someone match the frame and matt with the painting. She brought it to school and hung the finished piece matted and framed and hung it on her wall in her classroom. Everyone that saw the painting loved it as much as she did. Myself, I was surprise that the painting came out so well. It was my first little red school house to paint.
