Painting for a Ready Made Frame

Twins Sold
oil on fine primed canvas
size to be determined by the owner

The other day when I was in Target I saw a bunch of wonderful new photo frames and it got me thinking. What if someone wanted to frame one of my paintings, um, inexpensively? Well most of the Target frames came with mats already cut and if the painting was as thin as a photo it would instantly work in one of these frames.

Here is a frame with an opening of about 6x9" or 5x7" under $20. The painting above could be cropped the size of that opening.

And another with an 6x6" opening, same price.

Here's the same painting cropped as a square. The actual canvas is painted with lots of space surrounding the image, so it can be cropped to taste.

I really like the kind of mat that has a deep portion of mat at the bottom and I definitely saw those at Target, but couldn't find them on their website, to illustrate here.

So, I am offering this directly from the blog, bypassing Ebay, $75, $5 shipping. Paypal or checks.

  2. Or when will you be painting an apple pie? That would be a different kind of challenge.

    Having all that, you will LOVE the long hours and consistent effort
    you put into this venture. NTAuthority apparently have problems with other
