Happily ever after

I remembered that my friend had mentioned painting a room violet. She is going to accent it with purple and yellow, so that solved the background problem. Glazed Indian yellow around the edges of the ball and turned the background violet. I like it much better this way and the yellow adds a slight glow around the main subject.

Since this is a gallery wrap, it's not framed. Its gallery wrapped edges are painted beige and the back includes a beige grosgrain ribbon for hanging. My friend can have it framed, if she would like. However, I found a nice shabby chic display easel for it. (See an example of a beige edge here and ribbon on finished back here in previous posts.) 



And here's the end to our fairy tale. See the charm hanging on the pink ribbon from the ball? It says "Happily Ever After". Some paintings just name themselves.
