See I have used hard woods before. Picture frames are pretty much what got me into this woodworking journey. The frame is maple. The turnings are painted with oil paint to match the paintings boarder. This is one of the very few of my paintings that have people in it. I did this while going to a college woodworking program. It helped pay my way.

Hi Dennis;
—-great piece Dennis, I have been watching how you paint the colors of flowers and the detail that you bring out in your art work….

I also like how you have painted those turnings to match the border, again great ‘wood art’!

Dennis, I think many people dismiss picture frames. But in my opinion, a good frame is hard to make. The miter joint is not easy to make. If your joint is out only fractionally, by the time you get to the fourth corner you have a problem. Also, the joint is inherently weak being end grain to end grain. So making a good sturdy picture frame with a miter joint is not for the faint hearted,

I recognize the flower style for here. Nice work, as usual, Dennis.

Dang, Dennis I did’nt know you had that kind of ability, like Don says that is one unique frame, gave me some ideas. How did you make it look like marble or is it. Cool bro. The painting is very cool, Mike

Mike The marble look is painted on. Most of my paintings are wildlife so this one is really out of my element.

Have your say...
