Frames Are Like Hugs = They Do A Painting Good + NEWS

A friend of mine who sells his crafts at the market, Mike Goede of Good Natured, scours the countryside for tossed wood. One person's junk is another's treasure. And so is the case for these beautifully rustic frames he custom makes for me. They have the feeling of driftwood, weathered and rough. They look like they might be made of repurposed lobster traps, but most of the wood he scores is from house renovations.

I thought a few of my original oil paintings needed something extra to show them off, and these frames proved to be the perfect solution, enveloping them like a hug from an old friend…

Shown above is Cloud Chasers #1 and Cloud Chasers #2, each framed 8"x8" oil on canvas.
Below is Goldenrod Beach (12"x24), followed by Sand Shadows (18"x24".
And lastly, is Headlands, a little 5"x7" oil painting on wood.

Before you scroll along, there are some important updates to share…

…I'm packing up my life as I know it to hit the road for 13 months in a sure-to-be-amazing art project called The Painted Road. I'll be posting new art there as I paint it "en plein air" as I travel through 10 countries. So there are big changes on the horizon!

  • My last Saturday at the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market is April 12th.
  • My Ocean Art Studio Etsy Shop will be closing April 16th.
