Just wanted to share my rustic frame I made for my first rooster painting.

The wood is from old pallets and the iron, from an old piece of corrugated sheet.

Well that's different Maryna! I like the outdoor material concept and, it's growing on me. I didn't like it initially but, that's because it's a new look to me. I'd like to see it in situ like in a kitchen or dinning area.
Well done with your multi talented skills  O0 :clap: :clap:

It's adorable, Maryna!

I like the frame  it works well with the rooster, Maryna - I might even be able to make one of these, - I guess you could fasten them at the back too. How do you get the painting to stay in? With little bent nails?

Maryna, can you please add the image in again as it seems to have disappeared and there are other who would like to see it.  :thankyou:
