Framed Ernest Lee Funky Chicken Bride and Groom!

Here is a commission piece by Columbia’s favorite artist Ernest Lee celebrating the wedding of a young couple that happen to be Gamecock fans. This measures about 13″ by 24″ and is framed in a 1″ black Italian hand-finished moulding. Fantastic!

Ol’ Ernest does some nice artwork, folks collect it like crazy. Not enough people realize how nice they look framed, though! At Elite Framing we have learned how to frame them. We use distressed woods, the textures picking up on the roughness of the paintings themselves. Here is a nice example.

Framed Ernest Lee Funky Chicken Golf!

Framed Ernest Lee Funky Chicken Golf!

We’re pretty sure Ernest hasn’t swung many golf clubs, what with this crazy flying leg in the chicken’s golf swing. At any rate, we dig the painting he created! This bird just smacked it down the fairway. We framed this one in a 1″ distressed hand-finished black Italian moulding, it has that “dragged around the parking lot” feeling that is important when framing Ernest’s work.

Framed Ernest Lee American Flag! (approximation)

Our ol’ pal Ernest Lee is the Funky Chicken artist. He does more than chickens, though! Here is an (approximation of… don’t count!) American Flag done on plywood. We out a distressed dark frame on it that balances the stripes. We have this and many other gift ideas at Elite Framing located in Columbia’s historic 5Pts shopping and entertainment district!

Funky Chicken!  Yellows and Greens

Funky Chicken! Yellows and Greens

This fun little chicken was brought in recently, it measures about 28″ tall. We have framed many, many of Ernest Lee’s Funky Chickens over the years and we have a few favorite frames to use. This is one of our “Go To” choices, it is an Italian thin hand finished distressed black moulding, the scale plays off Ernest’s black lines in his chickens and the distressed quality is a must, given Ernest’s particular textures. The Good Stuff!! We have the Good Stuff at Elite Framing!

A somber piece of folk art, nine individual portraits as one by South Carolina artist Ernest Lee. This large painting (six feet by five feet) is stretched canvas in a 3″ walnut stained moulding. Ernest is donating this piece to Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston. Peace to all.
