When I found I could paint something frameable I went off to the local Value Village. I bought lots of frames for just a few dollars each. Now I paint my new paintings to the frame sizes. That way I save $100’s of dollars on framing.
This spring when the weather is warm I plan to buy some spray paint and also some of those little pots of fancy antique paints. Take my frames off and do some nice paint effects on them so they look very professional…. looking forward to that.
