taking a chance

It's framing time. Normally I frame my small paintings, but anything large or unusual I have my wonderful framer Bosco do it. I decided long ago that I realize I could save money doing it all myself, but it's about time and quality. I don't have the time (since I teach part time) nor do I have the knowledge to do certain paintings justice. That's the long way of saying I am taking a chance framing this one. It seems to me that the drips and raw edges are part of the whole, part of the thinking. Therefore I am keeping them in. (ignore the black on the right side..warp of camera on this large piece.) I am having Bosco deep shadow box it leaving all the "unfinished" exposed.
