Morning Glories

Sorry about this. For taking nature's most optically exciting blooms (a reason to use your ultramarine blue straight from the tube) and rendering them with all the pizazz of an office carpet.

All is not lost though, because I'm going to put you on to my picture framer. Pasadena Picture Framing, on Walnut in Pasadena. I've probably at one time or another been to every framer in the vicinity, to frame my paintings, paintings I bought, and prints that came my way. For less money than anywhere else, sometimes a veritable steal, you can have your pictures framed by a true craftsman with an artist's eye. I challenge you to pick a mat or frame you will like better than what Richart picks for you. And the service doesn't stop there: I believe, if you asked, he could improve upon your painting and deliver it yesterday.

While you're there, you could stop for food at Rick's Drive In. Nothing fancy, but I trust their meat, and like their hot sauce. The menu is unique and the ambiance is very authentic.
