My First "Official" Framed piece of art

Ok so I did this piece awhile back, but it truely is my favorite. It started out as 3 different canvass collages: A 6"x8", a 5"x7" and a 4"x6". I was trying out different background techniques from Claudine Hellmuth's "Collage Discovery Workshop". I never planned on them being put together, but I came from from Nashville( a CKC convention and visit my friend Barb) and I had a 10"x20" blank piece of canvass in my stuff, and thought why not? Plus they all turned out to be along the same color scheme. I think I had to try out every new embellishment and technique I learned in Nasville on this one collage. Then the guy at Arron Bros. did such an amazing job on the framing, that I completely fell in love with it. But of course this picture does not show the frame, and I can't seem to get a really good picture of it, that shows the frame as well as enough of the detail.

OK so of all of your art pieces, this canvas remains my favorite. I think of it as a "signature" Carrie piece of art. I know I've said it countless times, but your talent amazes me. The good Lord knew what he was doing with you. Art is such a great escape, one that I am proud to share with you! Barb
