We’re gonna need a bigger boat. And a bigger frame!

This painting that we recently finished is notable for a few reasons. One, it took two of us practically an entire day to stretch and frame the canvas. That’s mostly because of its size. But it’s also because it was going in a floater frame. You can see in this close-up how the 3/8″ gap between the painting and the frame make it appear to float.

So there’s no glass or edge of the frame, or any other design element to hold the canvas in from the front. That means we have to do all the work from behind and it has to be centered with just the 3/8 allowance all ’round. Ouch.
In the end, everything came together the way it’s supposed to. We thought it looked great, but the customer is always the final judge. Well, not only did he like it, he emailed us to say how happy he was and included a photo of the piece in its new home. We almost never get to see this, and it was really gratifying. Now that we know where it ended up, we can tell that the design was done properly ’cause it looks amazing!
Thanks so much to QC for his business and for sharing this photo with us!
