This is an unusual painting that was inspired by the frame! I found it at an antique shop in Chicago. The lovely curved wooden frame held a black piece of wood. I cleaned it up, reapplied a coat of black paint and added the image of wildflowers from my garden. I named it "The Apothecary's Window" because the black background reminds me of some of the early herbal paintings. I imagine this on the wall of a medieval doctor.
