Choosing the Right Frame

When I first started exhibiting, I wanted a consistent look and feel for my oil paintings which led me to make my own frames. I purchased bulk molding with a simple profile and then using a miter box and a hand saw constructed frames in various sizes as needed. After a while I realized that the quality of my framing was not up to snuff and in many cases was detrimental to my artwork. So as painful as it was, I made the decision to reframe my artwork starting from scratch. I spent hours perusing websites and visiting art stores that carry open-backed frames. After much trial and error I still don't have all the answers when it comes to choosing the right frame but I have learned to be more critical in my selections. For more thoughts on framing check out this article on Artists Network.


"Tsunami"  $625 Oil on Canvas Board  14"H x 18"W, with Frame: 20.625" x24.625"

Here I combine 2 frames: an inner narrow frame, hand painted to act as a liner, and a dark outer frame.
