Framed Coin and Embossed Palmetto!

Framed Coin and Embossed Palmetto!

We did this neat little piece as a presentation piece of diplomatic good will from the state of South Carolina! A commemorative coin paired with a hand made embossed palmetto (made by South Carolina artist Dot Goodwin!) We used a cream linen matboard and top mounted the coin and palmetto. We used hidden spacers to keep the glass off the coin and palmetto. The frame is an Italian hand finished distressed gold with repeating beaded lip. This little piece measures about 8″ x 10″.

Framed Ernest Lee Palmetto!

Framed Ernest Lee Palmetto!

We recently got to frame this wonderful palmetto by SC’s own Funky Chicken artist Ernest Lee. We used a rustic hand-finished black Italian moulding. This piece measures about 12″ wide by 30″ tall.

Framed Palmetto Original Art!

Framed Palmetto Original Art!

Here is a nice pair of original artwork, oil on paper. We used floater frames (Made in Italy!) in distressed earth tones and raised the art with hidden stretcher strips. These pieces are about 30″ tall! Nice, elegant and complete.

Wonderful Hand Drawn Geometric Palmettos by Neill Bultman!

Wonderful Hand Drawn Geometric Palmettos by Neill Bultman!

A customer brought in these fantastic originals to frame. A set of three geometric palmettos by Neill Bultman. We framed them in a thin black moulding to mimic the line work in the art. We used spacers to keep the glass off the original artwork. They measure 18″ x 24″ each. If you need a Columbia frame shop to help you with your framing needs give us a call!

Framed Palmetto Tree Watercolor

Framed Palmetto Tree Watercolor

This little piece is framed with a thin bamboo motif moulding (I know! I Know! But it works so well.) The scale and texture of the bamboo moulding go very well with the Palmetto. We floated the watercolor on the matboard, showing the torn deckled edges. Interesting! The whole piece measures about 11″ x 17″.

Framed Art of the Day! Embossed Palmetto by Lynne Currin

Framed Art of the Day! Embossed Palmetto by Lynne Currin

This nice little cut metal Palmetto on a SC blue background just screams with Sandlapper pride. Columbia artist Lynne Currin creates these beauts (and many more designs) in a clean, simplistic style. We’ve been seeing the two sizes, 16x20s and 18x24s. We framed them in a smooth shiny silver moulding. Come see beautiful art like this at Elite Framing in Columbia SC’s 5 Pts shopping district.
