What frames to choose?

Well, as you can see a decision has been made! Sand Runnels Grey & Blue will be framed together Probably without a mount, set against a painted backboard, with a solid white wood moulding? Same with 'Dusk' and 'Dusk Green' So pleased with 'Low Tide, Porthmeor 2013'.  Love this new 'distressed' frame bought locally.  The faded green complements the painting despite differences in palette..... Porthmeor - try facing out to sea, look left and then slowly to the right and there's a good chance you will see bright sunlit rocks and sea, blue sky, dark grey, stormy clouds and rain squalls approaching.  All in one glance!   SOLD   A foam lightened sea green, the way painted windows and doors look when eroded by salt, sand and wind.
