I have really come to enjoy framing my artwork. It certainly adds more time to the production of the artwork, but, with the framing, I can say, it is finished. It just looks finished.
Many of the frames I have build by hand and decorated. My skills at gilding have certainly improved, with me figuring out a few tricks along the way.
Anyhow, I have two other paintings sitting on the easel, waiting for further brush strokes.
