    The Color of Asphalt

    With the current "pandemic crappola" the handful of artists I do work for has dwindled. No shows or galleries right now for their work so they're being understandably cautious. The up side to that though is that it gives me more time to experiment with frames and other aspects of my...

    Ebonized Red Oak, Hand Crafted Frame

    Like to share the creation and results of this recent frame I made for my favorite client -- my wife! Some of the other people I make frames for prefer that they're not shared on public boards; why?, I'm not sure. Anyway, this painting is oil on panel and measures 12" x 16". My wife wanted to...

    New Frame for "Here Comes the Sun"

    Is black the "new gold"? Seems as if many of the frame requests I've had lately are for black ones. They are easier than water gilded gold leaf which is what I'd like to continue to get better at but no matter what the commission, I always look forward to the challenge. What I like to do with...

    Revisiting the Beaded Frame

    In early June I added a post to the Grumble talking about a beaded frame I'd created for my artist wife, Diane Eugster. I'm primarily a furniture maker and woodcarver but love the challenge of making custom profiles for her as well as other artists here in the Phoenix area -- contact me if...

    Latest Frame Design: Beaded Landscape

    Although my work probably falls more into the category of woodworking rather than strictly picture farming thought I'd share the latest design on the Grumbler! All of it started out with Basswood; Peterman Lumber here in Phoenix carries a 1 1/16" thick random width/length which was the basis...

    Chameleon gets Framed

    Here's the latest carved frame that I've been working on. Just a side note is that there have been a few other clients besides my wife that have had me do some frames for them, glad that's happening here for me. Very hard to compete with mass-produced and imported frames although I try to keep...

    Been Busy -- Another frame to Share

    It's been a busy time for picture frames in my shop lately. This is another one for my best client, my wife! She recently had three of her paintings accepted into the Portrait Artists of Arizona show here in Scottsdale and this is one of them. Somewhat unconventional technique where raw wood...

    Floater Frames -- New to Me!

    Recently my wife and best client asked if I could make a 14" x 18" floater style frame for a stretched canvas painting she recently completed. Although I knew what a floater frame is I had no idea of how to make one. Checking the usual YouTube and other online sources showed the amatuerish...

    Final Frame for Meyer Vogl Show

    I've shared the other frames designed for my wife's upcoming show so thought I'd share the final one as well! You may recall that these frames were made from moldings bought at Foster Planing Mill which we found in their "seconds area". Foster always advertises in PFM and is a major supplier...
