I have been busily getting my new paintings together for my art opening on Thursday. I have framed some of my new big pieces in old frames and love how they have come out!
This is Rosewooded Cathedral. I did a lot of work on the frame so I could keep the distressed look of crumbling plaster and curling gold leaf. I stabilized the old gold leaf on the frame and sprayed the whole pieces heavily with acrylic varnish. I love how the gold leaf plays off the gold of leaves creating the rose window!! The matting and backing are acid free and archival quality with UV glass. $1200.00
This is Dandy Lions. This is framed in an antique oak frame. When I started working on this frame it was a uniform dark dust color. However after much cleaning, sanding and hand waxing it has gold and reddish hues and a great luster. I love how the frame plays off the dandy lion stem color! The matting and backing are acid free and archival quality with UV glass. $1200.00
Sir Cecil needed an old frame too! This frame also took a lot of work to clean and stabilize. It has also been sprayed with acrylic varnish to protect the plaster. There are still hints of gold leaf around the edges that play off his top hat. The matting and backing are acid free and archival quality with UV glass.
Time Tinkerers is framed in an old style but new frame. I really like how the black of the frame pulls out the shadows and numbers on the clocks! The matting and backing are acid free and archival quality with UV glass. $1200.00
All these new pieces can be seen at my art opening at Lisa’s Frame Shop in Fayetteville NC on March 20th 5:30-7:30.
