Framed Artwork Sizes and Caring for Framed Artwork

Framed Artwork Samples
I thought I would take a photo of my latest commission framed alongside some of my other artwork to show the different sizes of frames.  

The family commission is in an 18x24" frame, the cow skull, Better Days, is in a 16x20" frame and the figures are both in 14x18" frames.  The smaller abstract painting are all in 9x11" frames. 

I thought it might be nice to show several sizes together to show how the sizes relate to each other.  Though had I note been under the weather for the past few day I would have provided more variety, maybe another time :)

I also posted a cross link to some tips on choosing frames and caring for artwork from this past post.

So now my commission is all wrapped up and ready to go "home" and no matter how many commissions I do, I always breath a sigh of relief seeing it packaged safely in it's box...along with a little pang of separation anxiety ;)

Nicely done Tracey! I feel the same way after a commission, part of me wants to keep the picture and look at it for a few more weeks, enjoy it a little, instead of giving it to the owner so quickly. And the other part of me feels that sigh of relief too once it's framed and packaged, done and done!!

I did a commission as well over the holidays, will post it to my blog soon.

Your framed pieces are gorgeous! Wishing you 365 days of joy and creativity in 2011 :)

Thanks so much Vanessa :) I am looking forward to seeing your commission as well. I tend to forget about blog visiting as so many blogs are no linked on facebook I go there and then forget to leave, damn time sucker, but very cool to see all the amazing works in "one spot"!

Wishing you joy & creativity in 2011 as well!
