I captured this image at the Homestead Museum in The City of Industry, California. There's a lot of gorgeous areas withing this museum and the photo ops are many. This image was captured outside the new house, to add a little drama to it I turned it into a black and white with a selective section in full color.

Wanda's Art Framed

Three beautiful greeting cards designed by my dear friend Wanda.

Back in November of 2007 my dear friend Wanda sent me five greeting cards displaying her paintings. She she was supposed to send me only one of the Old Truck as a "Thank You" for featuring her photos on my photo blog for a week. So when I received the envelope and found out it had five cards I was pretty happy.

I put them away in a safe place and didn't think of them much until last September when for my birthday Wanda sent me an 8 X 10 print of the "Old Truck". Since I had that print framed I thought it was time to take the small greeting cards and do the same to them.

Again I went to Hobby Lobby my framing place of choice and between their talented framers and I came out with the proper frames for these type of cards. The single flower deserved its own frame, while the wolf and the lion are sharing the other frame. The other two I will keep as cards and will display them as such but these two frames will soon be displayed in one of my walls.

And while this blog is displays all of the melo-duckworth originalz photographic captures, I am proud to share it with some of Wanda's original water paint artwork.

Thank you Wanda.

Alto Revisited

I had done this one before but as a special request this one was done in a frame with no border and I believe it does look really nice too.

The Old Truck

This one is mine, all mine. My dear friend Wanda sent me the watercolor print and the jpeg to this awesome image. It was originally posted on her blog back in May of 2007, and she had even sent me a small greeting card featuring her painting of the old truck but last week for my 50th birthday she sent me an 8 X 10 print and I enlarged the jpeg and what you see here is the end result.

I am very pleased with the way it came out. Highlighting both the original as well as the water painted version in the same frame was the best way to display this priceless work of art.

Thank you Wanda, this one will hang proudly on one of my walls.
