The full picture

Some of you asked to see the full picture of “Half way to nowhere” from this post. I have been photographing it, turning it this way and that, trying to figure out which way would go up and suddenly noticing the bunny ears.

I found that it could go either way as now all that I see is those two long ears.

Looking for a suitable frame, I found a framed print purchased in Tunisia many years ago. It hasn’t been up on a wall in more than a decade, so I decided to use both the frame and passé-partout. I need to remove the signature though, hopefully the use an eraser will make it magically disappear.

The frame is painted to echo the print, but I like the teal colour against the hot red and yellow. My first instinct was to repaint it, but now I’m thinking of adding some texture and mask some of the colour through some kind of decoupage. Paper? Fabric? Hmmm.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Very pretty Nina. Love the combo of fiber and paper and paint! Of course I love the colors... red is my favorite. That will brighten any wall on which it is hung.

  2. It is brilliant! The mat and frame bring it to justice.
    Love it.

  3. Hi! What a great painting! Absolutely bunny ears, but upside down I see a little person or a cat jumping towards to her/his hands ... you know how me make (someone made) the 'wheele of wagon'. Show the frame also, when it's finished! x Teje
