I had, at the back of a cupboard, a number of vintage frames. I had been intending to paint them all black. But in the end I decided to leave them just the way they were. Does anyone else struggle with the idea of painting over a gilt frame? I have, so far, never brought myself to do it, as I find there is a faded sense of opulence in an aged gilt frame. As for the white frames, they had taken on a shabby kind of look all on their own.
So I raided the two shoe boxes full of Luca and Julia's artwork highlights from the past few years, and came up with, what I thought, to be an interesting and colourful assortment.
Sadly, I had to cut them down a bit.
And luckily there is plenty of space for more...
