Frames for Oil paintings.

Oh if only we didn't have to frame our pictures !

If we could just paint them and someone would whisk them away and hand us a nice fat cheque and loads of adulation in return.
Dream on!
But it is most important to finish off work with a frame that showcases your painting to it's best advantage. Yet the frame itself must only be noticed in a very secondary way.
I use two types of frame for my 12 inch square pictures.


  1. Curved near white moulding with gold slip, more traditional. Makes the picture appear larger.
  2. Plain white float frame, looks very clean and modern.
I like both frames, but the choice depends on surroundings and the customer, or potential customer.
