Today I went to collect the framed oil portrait of German shepherd Georgie and later took some photos for my blog. The client wanted a modern framing and I can’t disagree because modern framings complete my recent paintings and drawings really well. When I drove over to the framer a few days ago, the framer who I usually discuss framings with wasn’t there. I went upstairs to choose the moulding myself and later wrote him an email about my wishes.
Many times when I view mouldings next to a painting, I end up choosing only one combination that I really love, once that has been done I never change my mind. Today at the framers when I already went out the door, the framer hurried after me again telling how much he really loves the framing I chose. Actually there are two mouldings combined, one black very deep and one inner green. Both mouldings complete this painting in color and style. The green inner moulding gives an extension to the actual painting and the black one brings out the dark colors of the dog. This framing actually doesn’t touch the canvas edges in front. I love this and I hope you like it as much as I do.
