Framed

Spent yesterday morning in the basement with strips of molding and the miter saw. I'm not a big fan of metal frames and prefer to construct my own. Even though it always takes more time than I think it will, wood frames feel more substantial than metal. I finished them with a couple of coats of black gesso, then a coat of butcher's wax. After cutting mattes, I dropped Plexiglass into the frames followed by the prints, Foamcore board for backing and then finished with paper tape to seal the back. Screw eyes and wire completed the job. Anyway, I'm pleased with the results and next weekend these newest works will be heading to the Akus Gallery in Willimantic, Ct.
