The background and sides were gilded with gold leaf.
This original piece was crafted from paper money.
A float is a minimalist frame option sometimes used when framing art on canvas. The art drops into the front of the frame so none of it’s front surface is covered. This is beneficial when the painting is extended over the sides or if the lip of a conventional frame would cover important parts of the art. Most float frames are simple profiles, but a second decorative frame could be added for a unique presentation.
In this example, Marena of Bensalem brought us her art that was designed with hundreds of paper hearts made from currency bills which were pinned to a hand pieced gilded background. It was stunning! By using a float frame the viewer can see the textured sides of the art.
This photo reprint of the USS Rawlins was recently framed to celebrate a 90th birthday for a sailor who served on this ship in the South Pacific during WWII. We were asked to include the ribbons of this very young sailor who was anxious to join the war.
We love the patriotic colors and we thank this fine soldier for protecting our country!
Vintage photographs are one of the most popular items that we frame at Whispering Woods Gallery. Sometimes we digitally restore an older photo and print out a new copy to frame. We combine vintage photographs with an item such as a military medal, calling card, piece of jewelry or some other type of memento. Sometimes we just frame the original photo. We carefully determine your needs when you meet with us. The frame can be simple or ornate. The style can be traditional, contemporary or transitional. We have a wide variety of frames and every project is unique.
