Framed Miniature Art!

Framed Miniature Art!

Here is a nice example of miniature art. Created by South Carolina artist Jean Bourque this ink on paper only measures about 4″ wide by 2″ high. We put an exaggerated 4″ wide white mat on it, creating a wide dead space between the frame and the art. The frame itself is a thin pewter finish with a small repeating pattern, picking up the delicate pen strokes of the art. Kind of makes us think of Frank Lloyd Wright a bit!
