Fine Art Friday

Picture Framing

Yesterday I took a field trip with a friend to purchase a frame for her oil painting: an Italian landscaped by my DD#2. She chose this one displayed horizontally. I forgot to get a picture of the finished product, but will do that soon and add it to this post. Here's a link to the painting in progress.

We traveled to JFM Enterprises and spent the better part of two hours *trying on* different frames. This was *work* for me as decorating decisions do not come easily. And as you know, a frame is an integral part of presenting the artwork and can make a big difference.

Here's how a copy of Sargent's The Breakfast Table looks in the above frame.

What do you think?
