White Gold Apple Tree


This is one of my paintings that I've framed up for an exhibition next week (details below). I've used white gold in the painting, so I've echoed this in the framing using a similarly coloured slip. Surrounding that is a super glossy black frame. A hopefully super stylish look :-)

Metallic Frames


A couple of metal fronted frames in today, one silver, one bronze. You can't really see that well in this photo, but the sides and inner lip on these frames are black, which stops the metal being too 'bling' :-)

Sam Toft print


Framing up a really great print by Sam Toft today, love her work so it's great to have something in to take a closer look at. We've gone for a simple grey frame to echo some of the sky colour and really allow the other colours to glow :-)
