Project Information

During a day trip to Talkeetna, Alaska last summer, my wife and I purchased a trio of prints from a local artist. Not-so-fast-forward to a few months later and I finally get around to making a frame for them. Never having worked with it before, I decided to try sapele. I had the mat and glass cut to order and built the frame to fit. My wife likes simple lines so I left is mostly square and flat, with the exception of a shallow inner bevel to add a little depth, and contrasting miter splines in maple (not shown) because…well, I wanted to. Finish: BLO, SealCoat, satin spray lacquer.

Edit to add: Artwork by Laurie Cartwright; Susitna River Studio; Talkeetna, Alaska.

Playing a long shot here. The artist's name wouldn't happen to be JoAnn George, would it?

Nice frame.
