      An unusual style , but definitely well done.

      I really like this Sue. Would hang it for sure, although I don't think the frame does the best for it. Framing is expensive here, don't know about there, so maybe leave it!

      Karen I Agree that a new frame would do justice to this painting but will be carefully picked.
