More Cat Art!

As my collection of Barb Plevan's handpainted miniature cat plates grows, I've framed a second set.

I found a pretty distressed wooden frame in muted peaches and sage greens and removed the easel back.  I solved the problem of the glass having been glued into the frame by mounting some pretty embossed gold scrapbooking paper behind the glass to form an attractive textured background.  Then I glued the plates directly onto the glass.  The effect, to me, is very pleasing. The plates now pop and the display has extra depth.

I love Barb's work ... so whimsical, colorful, and filled with feline adoration!  Barb's paintings are available for purchase in her Etsy shop:
