"Just a Moment"
An orignal acrylic painting of three row boats from artist Harry Thompson, is a reminder for this customer of their vacation. The customer wanted to frame the piece in a large Float Style frame that allowed the edges of the artwork to be exposed but also to give the entier piece a little more presence and size.
We chose a Larson Juhl, Gallery One, black float frame. The float frame has a 1 1/2" face, it is atypical of a standard float frame which is usually around 1/4" - 1/2" wide. The overall look for the finished piece is well defined without overpowering the artwork.
Float frames are used to highlight paintings, where the artist has finished the sides of the painting with embelishments or has continued the image over the edge.
