The Importance of Framing

 

Never underestimate the importance of what framing can do for a painting.  I made a big mistake by getting a painting framed in the wrong frame and was so very disappointed with the result.  This was partly my fault and the framers fault as we had both agreed to a frame but sadly the framer couldn’t get it and decided to put it in another frame.

Mr Cockerel in the original frame done by the framer.

 He looks very small and insignificant in this frame – 30cm x 30cm oil on linen on board available at AlicesArtHouse on Etsy.com

Second frame I chose. Framed this way he looks far bigger and more important.

Framing can be very expensive which is always a little worrying when buying a painting, but I’ve come to realise that it can be worth the price.  Framers can be great at picking various colours and styles for you to help you make the most of your paintings. Find a good framer and stick with them.  I won’t be going back to my original framer.
