An original watercolour, "Singing in the Rain", by Amherst, Nova Scotia, artist Ben Pitman.

Ben is a very talented watercolour artist who has sold his artwork across Canada and the United States.  His artwork can be seen on his Facebook page, Benjaminart9.  I purchased this watercolour for my own collection, along with its companion piece "Raindrops Keep Falling".  I chose the artichoke coloured moulding from Roma Moulding's Gianni collection.  Its speckled, rustic finish went perfectly with the theme of the watercolour.  The bevel of the green submat was hand-painted black to tie in with the black details of the frog and lily pad. Tru Vue conservation clear glass, with its 99% UV protection, was chosen to help protect the watercolour.
