The first and simplest would be those pictured here. Simple, sleek, minimal, modern frames in bare wood, stained or painted the color of your choice. Options for wood are open but so far I've found Aspen is a nice option with a variety of sizes that work well for the application.
From there it can get pretty personalized. From hand-done embellishments to unique presentation options, I want the frame to work both for the art and the situation.
Pictured here is an interesting case-study: this painting was on a towel and the buyer wanted to showcase the material as well as the texture rather than cover up the edges. I removed the painting from the stretcher-bars and created a wooden cradle to hold the painting, smoothed that out with some drywall plaster, then framed it with 1/4" strips. I painted the whole thing black since I used a couple different types of wood and added a couple brackets to the backside for added structure.
I've always been a doer and I would never change that, but sometimes I fall into the trap of constantly moving onto other projects when I could spend more time perfecting the one's already started.
I'm not a perfectionist, but I do like when things look a bit more buttoned up, I just have never really felt the need to do so if only for myself. I don't mind a loose canvas hanging on the wall...but other people generally don't see things quite in the same way and when you don't plan time for finishing touches, it's easy to forget about them until it's too late.
Framing has always been one of these "buttons" I often left undone. While I know art, especially small scale, almost always looks better framed I was more concerned about the art itself and I just didn't mind hanging paintings that were unframed. I've gotten better at it over time, but lately I've gone one step further and have been exploring offering framing services for all purchases.
The common follow-up: what would that look like.
The Answer: Well...there's a few options.
I'm not breaking any new ground but I love being able to provide options that make a buyer more confident in their purchase. Add a simple frame to your next painting on my website via the drop down menu on the item's page or contact me and let's discuss something a little more.
