Framed Contemporary Nude!

Framed Contemporary Nude!

We recently framed this ultra cool piece of artwork for a customer, a contemporary nude by artist Julie Hollis. We matted it is a flat grey museum quality conservation matboard to match the background of the art and accented with a blueish grey bottom mat to pick up on the lines in the art. We used a basic black 1″ wide frame. The hard straight masculine edges of the frame and mats juxtapose nicely against the soft curvy feminine lines of the art. This piece measures about 20″ by 16″.

Framed Tree Limb!  (You Read That Correctly) MADE in the USA

Framed Tree Limb! (You Read That Correctly) MADE in the USA

Over the last twenty years we have framed all kinds of things at Elite Framing, rarely are we surprised when a new idea comes in. This time we were! We have a customer ask if we could frame a limb. You know, a limb from Live Oak tree. With Spanish Moss draped across it. Now we can say that, YES, we can frame a limb from a tree! We hand stitched the limb onto a burlap colored and textured matboard. We had our friends at Southwinds Molding custom finish a shadowbox moulding in the colors and textures of the Live Oak Limb. We lined the inside of the shadowbox with the same burlap matboard. This piece measures about 38″ wide by 11″ high! Nice! And all mats, glass and moulding are manufactured in the USA! Made in USA!

Framed Newspaper Articles!

Framed Newspaper Articles!

One way to preserve a newspaper article is to frame it! We recently did these three, we often use black mats and black frames for newsprint. We added a second black mat so the white bevel gives it definition! Crisp, clean and versatile. A bonus is this moulding is Made in the USA! Right here in Columbia, actually, by our friends at Southwinds Moldings.
