This month I’d like to talk about picture framing! Yes I’m making my own frames or at least giving it a go! I’m making three frames and painting one in black, one white and one gold metallic, so hopefully they will look good. The aim is to give people a small range of colours in frames for those who don’t want to be bothered with getting the painting framed.
I have learnt how to mitre a 45deg edge with a $30 framing saw I picked up from gumtree. I’ve learnt how to use a router so my paintings sit nicely in the wood frame. Next I’m to glue them, staple them then paint in undercoat and the colour of paint I choose. So there is a fair bit of work involved in frames and now I realise why they are so costly! My frames are a simple pine frame that will suit a small painting. I haven’t attempted a big frame yet but I will get there! Next I want to learn how to box a floating frame! Talk about give things a go! I have my trusty husband for guidance.
I have done a few paintings since I last spoke to you. Pictured below.
More beach scenes. Concentrating on perfecting my surf!
This is at Corner Inlet in Victoria and has no surf and is quite calm. A lady is throwing a stick with her dog.

Im a tad late with the newsletter this month due to family commitments that I had to take care of. Along with that I haven’t painted for FOUR weeks!!! I’m hanging to get into the studio as I have a couple of portraits to try out. Now, Im not a portrait painter but I’ll give it a go. Stay tuned on that one.
Congratulations to this quarter’s free painting draw winner, Dee During from Victoria!
Dee won the spin and was very happy to receive it. For the video of the painting on my utube channel: @margielangtip4611 to view it.

Welcome to 2023!! I hope you all had a great holiday period and a happy and safe New Year! Did you make any resolutions? I did. I made three!
First was to get this newsletter out to everyone with the new year special of the DISCOUNT GIFT VOUCHER. Next was to get my website up and running and thirdly is to paint, paint, and paint!! I have joined an online course with Rod Moores Art Academy so hopefully I will be turning out some great works in the coming months. Currently I’m working on a large abstract painting and three miniature arts of Wilson’s Promontory for a Miniatures in May exhibition. Once they’re finished I will post them in the next newsletter.
