I have now chosen a few more frames for my skies, large still-life paintings and tiny tree paintings.
The sky paintings are 20cm x 20cm and I have flat contemporary frames, with a deep bevel. The frames are 7cm wide. I would describe these frames as ‘crisp’.
My little tree paintings, 10cm x 10cm needed to keep their sense of miniaturism. The paint is textured and applied really thickly, with delicious globs of pigment. The cradled frames are about 5mm wide on top and 2cm deep on the sides.
And then the large still-life paintings have 6.5cm wide frames that invite you to look into the painting with the frame profile bevelling inwards. They still look contemporary and have a slightly organic handmade feel about them to go with the rustic jugs.
I’m very pleased with the framing and my framer, Ian Clooney always does a grand job for me.
