Money can be a big issue when we consider framing, but it's money well spent. A frame can either make or break your presentation. For this show I spent what I consider an amazing amount of money on frames. I chose my special paintings to get the full diva treatment. Rather than use a simple floater frame for these, I made the frame match the specialness of the painting. It required over an hour to work with my framer to just figure out just one frame. And it really made a difference. They paintings I spent the most money and time looked best and sold easily.
The painting you see above is one my favorites from this show. I worked with my framer to get it just right. The dark frame next to the painting seemed to suffocate it. I tried everything including floating it to leave the edges present. Then I found another thin violet grey frame and saw that was the ticket! My wonderful framer built it inside the black green frame. It was not a frame I could have imaged, but it worked.
Think about it....what do you want your babies wearing when they go out?
