Amphicar

Rode and amphicar today.  Only 4000 were ever made, I've seen them on tv but never in person. Was a pretty smooth ride but I don't think you would survive the trip in choppy waters lol.

Fireplace #2

The framed family portrait I posted yesterday had a darker frame and the family wore darker clothing.  Here is another adequately sized portrait but this one is much lighter both in clothing and framing and it is sized appropriately so it can properly compete with the darker opening of the fireplace.

Decorating over a fire place

When picking the appropriate demension for your family portrait  (or any artwork) to go over a fire place it should be equal or greater than the opening of the fireplace.  Aside from the few times a fireplace is lit The fireplace is a large black space so whatever you display above it needs to balance or be greater than the fireplace or else it will overwhelm

the wall and distract from the art piece above it.
