Our consultants offer top notch advice when it comes to framing artwork of any kind. Take a look at Betsy’s approach to framing Carol O’Malia’s powerful canvas, Sidetracked.
Betsy presents two options for this impressive painting. First, a handcrafted leather frame with handsome detail at the corners to complement the weight of the piece. This custom floater frame will “house” the painting without resting directly on the canvas – allowing the piece to seemingly “float” within the frame. The rich tones of the leather play beautifully with the deep hues in the urban abstract painting.
The second option is a custom steel faced with a painted black, angled wood side. This weightier, yet clean lined contemporary frame will bring the lighter tones in the painting forward, tying into the variety of metal tones of the railway car.
Both frames are fantastic options, drawing out different characteristics of the piece. Not only will framing protect your artwork, but it will complement and elevate your special piece, creating a polished and finished look that ties into the space in which it resides.
