I don’t really like framing – in part because I’m not very good at it. I use plain frames so that the buyer can re-frame if desired, without having spent half the value of the artwork on the frame.
When I’m framing, I can check so closely that there is no dust between the glass and the mat/painting before I put in the staples, then after I’ve stapled…. where do all those bits of whatever come from??? That is one of the things that I enjoy about moving to work that doesn’t need to be framed.
Last fall when I was at the Rancho Mirage art show, a wonderful helper and I dropped a couple pieces framed under glass out of the back of the truck. Onto concrete. They were boxed, so the frames survived but the glass didn’t. One was a standard size frame, so I just had to pick up a piece of glass and reframe. The second wasn’t, and I’ve already wasted one piece of plexi-glass attempting to teach myself how to cut this. I’m going to have another go this week… but perhaps before I do…. someone would be interested in this refractured watercolor unframed – and then choose a nice frame for it that you like. It frames to 34×24″ frame.
Special deal – $490 (+ tax if applicable) and if I need to ship, I’ll include USPS shipping, or you can pick it up from me at a show, or we’ll figure out if I can deliver. (Master/Visa/Discover/Cash/Check on US bank). Let me know before Feb 20th!
