Finding suitable, affordable framing options for my work is a continual headache! I'm working on some 'journey' pieces which are long & thin but have to be shown landscape like this one below....colours are a bit odd by the way because I've been playing around in Picasa!
Typically I've made it a size which won't fit into any off the shelf frame comfortably so I've been costing up having it custom framed. Trouble is, since I use all recycled materials and am now even foraging for colour it kind of goes against the grain to buy anything new! Equally though I am aware that good framing can really enhance a piece and the work I'm doing at the moment is so delicate & fragile that it would look lost if not framed. In future though I think I will purchase the frame first so I know what size to work to....hate being constrained like that though!
