Well it isn’t rocket science, but here are a few hints.
Mounting and framing can be quite expensive, so as I have often said, ‘paint to fit’ if you have a suitable mount and frame loitering about. Or maybe one is slightly grubby or has had serious corner damage. Well use your imagination.
These two painting have no mounts at all. I thought I try and experiment. ‘The Salad’, painting show ingredients, so they have been divided up and allowed to overlap. The same with the ‘Figs in Brown Paper’. Here they are bursting with flavour out onto the paper
Often I am the happy recipient of old frames and sometimes they have mounts. This little black frame had a very sad mount, so I used sheet music to give a new lease of life and a ‘Red Hot Chili’.
You could use wrapping paper too. Anything is possible with a liitle imagination. So have fun being even more creative.
