I meant to post these a while back... These pics are of a piece that I finished a couple of years ago and gave to Ginny (Josh's mom) for xmas. She had it framed so well that I just had to post it... I was amazed how the framing added that perfect finishing touch! Ginny liked the marbly matteboard in the framing so much it influenced the paint color of the wall. I think it all just looks great! so neat-o!! I am always very impressed by great framing... I guess that is b/c I am really not skilled at making things look clean and polished. All that attention to detail drives me bonkers if it isn't essentially tied to the composition of a piece.
Anyways, here it is.
