Consequently, I have also been busy designing a new style of frame for these larger panels. My original floater frames didn't seem quite right for this type of surface. So, below is a picture of the painting in the frame I designed. Let me tell you, framing is an art form in itself and poses its own set of challenges. I'll have to write a post about this some time! The frame isn't fancy or anything, but, let me just say this, building it involved a table and a miter saw, a router, four sessions of sanding, staining and a final rub down with finishing wax. You'd never know just looking at it!!!
