“TAKING A BOW IN SANTORINI #30
Oil Painting on Canvas (in inches – 18″x 27″ and Print links)
This small boat resembles many Greek fisherman boats. They paint their “bows” and trim in red and other bright colors. This painting was an actual boat, but my inspiration to paint was the Bible, book and verse ~ Matthew 4:19, and Jesus said to them “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
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.
