"Cherry Heaven" & frames - SOLD


Click Here to Bid

I got some very nice floating frames recently from King of Frame (see photos below). They are basically regular frames that are a bit too big, with a black backing. Then the panel sits just on top of the backing, with a small space all the way around. They are SO PERFECT for these small panels because often an important part near the edge is covered up by the overlap of a regular frame. I think they look super fantabulosimo!!

Love the floater frames! Randy is framing a couple of mine for the show and I can't wait to see them. By the way - I got to finally see your work in person when I was there and it is so stunning!

Great floater frames! But I had traouble locating them on King O Frames site...style number please?

Love the paintings and frames Carol! I like Randy's floating frames though I haven't ordered any yet. I always hate to lose part of the panel on a small painting around the edges.

This one is very nice. Those cherries are eyecatching and the compostion is great.

Thanks for the tip on frames!

Sorry that I missed the high bid on the salt shaker painting. I looks great in that frame.

Carol Marine said...

Thanks, ya'll!! Mary, you can just find the style of frame you like on the site and they will make that into and floating frame. I'm pretty sure they can make it out of anything on the site (could be wrong). Best thing to do is ask. They have a 1-800 number: 1-800-506-7624

How does the painting actually get attached to the back panel in this type frame?

Stephanie Berry said...

I really like the way the painting looks in that frame. I'm wondering too how it gets attached. Could you maybe show a photo of that?

Julie in the studio said...

I have to ditto anonymous' question, for I am dying to know, how do the panels stay?

Kim VanDerHoek said...

Carol, your last painting on the Nov. 28th post, the one with the glass jar, spoon and salt shaker, are you going to list it on Ebay or is it going to a gallery? I'd love the opportunity to buy it.

I'm thinking they look super double duper fantabulosimo.
But your stuff couldn't even look bad in a frame made of old bicycle tires or rusty tin cans.

Kim Morin Weineck said...

Just wonderful! They complement your work beautifully.

I appreciate when artists share sources, too. Thank you for this!

I too want to know how the painting "sticks" on the front - sticky tape?

Carol Marine said...

Sondra- The framer recommends either silicone, OR, if you're in a hurry, hot glue. : )
