Deciding on a frame for a painting can be a daunting task at times. For me, the color scheme/look/tone of a painting often determines what direction I want to take with a frame. On the other side of things, sometimes the atmosphere and formality/informality of a room deciphers the frame. I am a BIG believer that there is a perfect frame for each painting, if needed...the perfect partner in crime to make a stunning statement on the wall, a WOW moment. However, I am also a big advocate for leaving pieces unframed. Frequently, the painting is all you need and makes enough of an accent on the wall. Larger abstract paintings can lend themsleves toward a unframed look or a more minimalist syle of frame. Don't overpower something that is already taking up a large portion of your wall. You never want to take away from the painting itself. Good luck in your framing! Here's to beautiful walls!

CREATIVITY - IN THE STUDIO
Posted on June 11th 2014 in Painting News
I strongly believe that a painting creates the tone and mood of a room. Whether the walls are stark white or lacquered in black, a painting pops off that color and creates the character and color scheme for the space. I prefer a painting to not exactly "match" its surroundings...it makes the painting the focal point and interest of the area.
Below are a couple spaces where I believe the paintings set the atmosphere and make the room.
