Rough-edge thick frame

Rough-edge thick frame

This frame was created in my shop from milled, rough (bark) edge white oak. A wonderful designer I work with, Val Vesely of suggested this “almost black” stained natural wood frame with a gap between the frame and the canvas. It was a challenge to get the mitre’s right with the uneven and rough edges. The edges were enhanced with some bronze dry-brushing and the client is thrilled with the look. The picture was taken in Door County, WI. in 2012, Copyright Thoennes Studios, 2014.
