New Framing Method!


These are my recent paintings;"Isolated Showers" (image 8x6") and "Catching The Light" (image 9x12"), framed in a new way for me. I saw a friend, Dianna Shyne, do up a painting this way and it looked great. The boards are painted around the edge with black acrylic and then they are mounted on silk linen mat board with silicone glue. My dear hubby made the frames for me from frame lengths we had in stock (thanks to Artnest Gallery which went out of business). This way you can make the amount of liner show in any size you like, and it has a nice, clean, contemporary look.
I will have these paintings, along with many more, at the upcoming Calyx show THIS Saturday, Oct 17th from 10am to 4pm. The show is the only show of its kind in Calgary, with fine craft, such as silver and glass jewelry, textiles, woodworking and ceramics, as well as a great assortment of original paintings. The show sees over 800 visitors each day, so it is really a must see if you are in town.
Needless to say I am busy framing....

Enjoy!

I must say this is a wonderful idea to frame your small paintings like this. I would never have thought of it. The frames are very nice and the silk, linen mount/matt board really brings the paintings out so well. The dark frames also suit the contemporary style of painting.
