"To Bette, With Love"
Three small images, each measuring 5 x7 inches, were painted for our customer as a gift from her friend. Each image had a handwritten title on the back, and one of them had an additional handwritten note. We scanned the back of the paintings so we could capture the original handwritten information. Next, we processed the scanned images in Photoshop to extract the handwriting and create the printed titles, which can all be seen in the finished piece.
Each image is attached directly to the Artique white matboard, and an opening was cut for each title and the personal note. The frame for this piece is "Deep Sea Blue" from the Larson Juhl Carnivale Collection. The pieces were collectively set back as a shadowbox, using the same Artique white mat on the sides to separate them from the Tru Vue Museum glass with 99% UV protection.
