American Impressionist Carve

This is one of my favorite profiles. 22k gold and about 5 inches deep. Since it is a fairly contemporary look designed this carve in the style of the American impressionist frames.

Christmas present revisited

I finally got around to framing the Rett Ashby painting that I got for Christmas. First I finished it with an umber panel (sorry for the bad photo) but I thought that it brought out the dark and cool areas of the paintings. So I covered the panel with gold. I let that sit a few weeks but then had to try something different--with a pale sage panel. My wife doesn't like it. I'm not sure yet.
