Zack Smithey is the artist behind the Easter Art Hunt the past 2 years in Ferguson! Last year, 2 of his paintings were “found” by lucky hunters in Corners Frameshop & Gallery. Check out this article in the Post Dispatch about his unique new home made out of shipping containers: http://www.stltoday.com/lifestyles/home-and-garden/at-home-a-unique-home-in-st-charles-built-with/html_3873c506-bf8e-5d34-a601-5faf79b4ea26.html
Who says paintings on velvet have to be tacky-looking? Look at this gorgeous vintage painting of Christmas candles on velvet! My customer values it as a sentimental treasure, so we designed an elegant frame to befit its place of honor in her heart and on her wall.
Now, bring me your velvet Elvis, your matador, your tiger…

“On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.”
(And to provide yummy cookies!)
They’re back! Girl Scout Troop 994 is out front of Corners Frameshop & Gallery till 2:00 today!
It’s Girl Scout cookie time!
These young ladies from troop 994 are braving the brisk weather with a table in front of Corners this morning. Show them some support while stocking up on those thin mints! They will be here today and the next two Saturdays from 10 until 2.
This is a companion piece to the vintage pen & ink drawing posted yesterday, showing more detail. The ivory French mat has a fine black drawn 1/2″ from the opening and another bolder black line 3/8″ from the first. The panel between the black lines is colored a soft blush hue to complement the delicate ink drawing of the dancers.
Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace;
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
And Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child must work for a living;
And the child born on a Sabbath day is blithe and bonny, and good and gay.
