My First Art Competition!

I finally got accepted into an art competition. It's the "Best and the Brightest" show at the Scottsdale Artist's School. I did this painting of a sweet girl in my church. I just loved the way she turned her feet.

Now, here's the problem, I have to frame it and I can't decide which frame to use. I personally like a gold frame for portraits, but black is all the rage right now. Maybe you guys can weigh in and help me decide. Here is the black frame:

Clean, simple and unadorned. Would look good in a Tuscan style home.

Here is the gold frame. Classic, timeless and a little flashy. What to do, what to do...

So, I need you to post in the comments which style you prefer as I have to have this thing delivered by Wednesday. Yikes!

Oh, and I am not the only artist in my home. Look at what my Art Girl did. A mother couldn't be any prouder.

Now, go vote.

It's hard to tell from the pics, really, but I like the black. The gold seems to draw too much focus from the girl. But then, nearly everything in my home is framed in black...LOL

not to leave two comments and seem like a weirdo but i was just catching up on your blog, and do you know how amazing you are? seriously, i'm amazed at what can be accomplished with a little determination.

Ha Pamela! I think the key word here is LITTLE determination.
