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.

  3. Love that 'distressed' frame - it really sets your painting off well. Not too sure about leaving the other two unframed - I'm a lover of pictures in frames, but then I don't quite see how you could frame the two together either!!

    1. Hi Gilly - glad you like the frame! The others will be framed too - glazed, probably white solid wood moulding, without a mount. Keep warm. Lesley x
