SANTORINI GETAWAY – Original Oil Painting – 20″ x 20″~available to purchase on this page at the bottom. Also a link to my “print site to purchase any of my prints.
For over 25 years I made these curved (beveled) frames. The design and depth of the frame was made by me and submitted to a milling company, where they made a “knife” to be used over and over to cut this curve. The hardwood used, was either Oak, Poplar, or Ash so that the frame could withstand the stretching of the canvas over and around to the back where it was stapled. I am older now and will not be building these frames anymore, but selling the machine used to join the corners and the original “knife” design. It is basically a 2-inch from the back and curved so gently that the canvas floats over the edge on the inside frame. All paintings come ready to hang. Coated wire mounted through brackets and screwed to back of frame.
I will be using the traditional, but upgraded, Gallery Wrap (flat edges rather than the curved). I have been left with many loyal collectors and followers who have commented on how the framing enhances the depth and interest in my paintings. All paintings are painted to the back edge of the canvas and so I will also paint the flat edge of future paintings I complete for sale.
Santorini high above the Aegean Sea on the cliffs of Santorini. A humble home with another view of the cobalt blue waters and volcanic islands just offshore. Geraniums are are seen on most of the patios and of course look for my signature birds in flight.
