For this Chalet style cuckoo clock painting, I worked at getting a good balance of whites and pinks, without it becoming a jumble or an eyesore. I tried to really let the pinks take center stage but the delicate whites lace it like sugar. I love the vintage frame and am really happy with the way the colors of the old yellowed mat look with the image. Also the frame is made of a beautiful soft grey.
This cuckoo drawing combines a vintage food stamp, my grocery list from two weeks ago, and an old sheet of yellowed music. I was learning to make ‘Steak Bernaise’ and was trying out tarragon for the first time. (You will notice it on the list). The challenge was to compose something to suit this odd gold frame, which I undertook with relish.
