Cows,Pears and Cake oh my!

The patina of an old oil painting is so beautiful. I wanted to try to age a few of my oil paintings by glazing them with a tinted varnish I mixed up.
Here they are after one coat:










I have so many cool old frames laying around...but none of them fit my paintings, which bums me out because that's exactly what I think they need. Maybe Hobby lobby has somethng old looking. Have a great Sunday friends!
