This nice acrylic on board is by Columbia artist Trahern Cook, it measures about 22″ by 32″. We framed it in a hand-finished Italian made olive veneer, utilizing the basic shape and straight lines to enhance the subject and style of the artwork. Nice work by the artist!

Thee vivid oil paintings from Guatemala were brought in by a favorite customer to be framed at Elite Framing. We stretched the canvases onto stretcher strips and framed them in hand-finished olive veneer mouldings, allowing for the depth of the stretcher strips. Bueno!

This sweet little oil painting of a goat is by local artist B Peake and only measures six inches square. We put a 3/4″ thin distressed wood frame on it (Made in Italy!)

Framed Parisian Oil Painting!

Framed Parisian Oil Painting!

We frame many pieces of art that our customers bring back from trips to Paris and this one is as authentic as they get. Most of the oil paintings we see have been removed from their original stretcher strips and rolled for transport in a tube. Not this one! An older painting, the customer wanted to preserve the integrity of the piece by leaving it on the original stretcher strips and going through the expense of shipping it overseas in a large flat box. We put a 2″ gold ornate frame on it (Made in France! appropriately enough!) This piece measures about 28″ by 20″. Fabuleux!

Reclaimed Artwork! (with an Expensive Italian Frame)

Reclaimed Artwork! (with an Expensive Italian Frame)

This unusual painting, we will call it Acrylic on Poster Board, was found at a recent estate sale for a measly $25. We put a nice hand-finished Black Italian frame on it and it is now ready to hang! Full disclosure, the frame itself cost a lot more than $25! Elite Framing will be doing the installation of this piece soon and will be sure to update this post with pictures of the painting hanging on the wall.

Framed Large African Oil!

Framed Large African Oil!

This large oil painting is on thin cotton, t-shirt grade. It was probably a bedsheet! This made stretching it challenging, as we had to take care not to tear it. The frame is a 2″ bamboo style, it gives the painting an authenticity. This large piece is almost five feet wide! If you have large or oversized art that needs proper attention consider Elite Framing!

Framed Philip Morsberger Oil Painting!

Framed Philip Morsberger Oil Painting!

One of the coolest things we have framed in a while at Elite Framing is this Philip Morsberger oil painting. The painting itself measures about 20″ by 30″ and we stacked TWO floater frames, one solid walnut and one solid maple (Made in the USA!) (tricky! indeed) Morsberger painted this piece over the past twenty years! It is fun to lok at (it was NOT fun to frame! Difficult work!)
