Ok. I used the wrong word. Rather than criticize, I should have typed critique, to evaluate and point out the good with the bad. It's all a matter of taste, yes, but Marc asked out opinions and I gave mine.Originally posted by BUDDY:
Pity there are so few responses to these. We seem to be loathe to criticize a fellow framer's work, even when he or she asks for it.
I think it should be pointed out that there maybe as many GOOD CHOICES as there are clients with differnt Taste. So while you like the Black frame ( I do also) the Gold one would look just as correct in a different setting. And it is exactly this that makes framers like me slow to critique another's work.
This reminds me of my CPF exam back in 88 . It hade a question that asked "given a certain decor what choice would you select in frameing materials" (Paraphrased drastiaclly) As I remeber it this question was removed from the test since there could be as many answers as there where choices given and NONE of them would be wrong.Which made the question useless.I think this was and is a very Valid point.
