Framed Pastel Landscape!

Framed Pastel Landscape!

This beautiful piece was brought back from Sierra Nevada somewhere. A wonderfully executed pastel, the image measuring about 14″ by 9″. We put a linen mat on it (we raised the mat with a layer of foam board, allowing the pastel to flake down behind the mat, out of sight!) The frame is a lovely 2″ distressed olive wood, hand finished in Italy. We used conservation glass on this piece, everything museum quality. We are showing two photos, one with flash on and one with flash off.

Framed Team USA Track Uniform!

Framed Team USA Track Uniform!

An excellent track uniform we framed, shadowbox style. English Jake hand stitches the uniform to a suede matboard, this one is a deep USA blue. We then used a deep black rope motif moulding, utilizing hidden spacers to keep the glass off the uniform. This piece measures about 30″ by 40″. And, don’t you know, these materials are all proudly Made in the USA!

We put some basic black frames on these wonderfully curved kid’s art pieces, the straight lines balancing the round paint shapes. Fun!

Kid’s art is just plain ol’ fun to look at. We are seeing these framed pieces being used in kitchens, hallways, kid’s rooms (!), offices, anywhere someone is looking for a flash of color. Most of the time we can frame these pieces for between $50 and $75, assuming that common 11″x17″ paper size. Fun!

Throwback Thursday Gamecock Football Heroes! Autographed Photo!

Ah, yes… Three of the greatest players from “back in the day” of Gamecock Football. Rick Sanford, Kevin Long and Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers pose in their Hall of Fame blazers. They look pretty happy (especially Big George! Best smile in Columbia!) We framed this large autographed photo in the Gamecock moulding and used black mats. This piece is LARGE, measuring about 40″ by 32″.
