Hello! I am back in NYC and this image is the frame that I have been working on for the commission. Now I don't want to complain but this has been a challenge. First the wood was cut short, my fault as I did not measure the outside dimension of the frame. I measured the inside dimension - stupid right?!? anyway, second time the guy at the lumber store (nice guy) cut short and incorrectly all around.
Third time the pro did it (I wish I could do it myself because as you know if you want something done right you have...) anyway they did not charge me the for the final cuts and to them I say, thank you. A Pro Framer would charge a lot more for a 58" x 46" painting no matter how simple the framing. am I bitter? No. Seriously, I am not bitter well alright just a tad. The bottom line is it seems to be going well and I am installing tonight at 7:30 before the debate of which I am chomping at the bit to experience. I love this blog and all of you beautiful people out there in the dark. Hey put some lights on damn it.
More to come...
