This highly detailed limited edition print reflected weeks of work by the artist, not to mention the skill involved. We have framed it simply in a narrow black not wishing to detract in even the smallest way from all that is going on in the image. There is some distortion and fade in our photo that distracts from the clarity.
Unusual challenge. Frame a pair of shoes. So, two frames, top and bottom with glass all round. Easy…..well not really.
This is a lovely child’s work. We felt it would have more impact than professionally commisioned advertising posters or pages in magazines. Put so simply it says, “Just Do It!”
Just Do It!
It has 1659 painted on as a date. If its not an addition then it is the oldest work we have restored and framed. You can see, it has at one time been in an oval surround. A lot of the shining gold decortation on the garment was almost obscured. Cleaning has revealed it. The frame is not so old; about 1900 maybe. And the gold slip is modern.
These two oil paintings on very light cloth, almost like a bedsheet, are vibrant and exciting. We have glazed them for protection so some reflection of light in the photos is inevitable.
Another work from Sian (sianmcgill.com) one of many she is exhibiting in North Wales (somewhere) through most of August 2019. Uncomplicated English Ash frame with a grey wash that lets the grain show through, mounted with a 35mm border on Soft White.
Not much room to move about in here at the moment. A lot of interesting work coming through.
TO SEE A SELECTION OF VARIED WORK WE HAVE DONE OVER THE PAST YEARS……JUST SCROLL DOWN AND DOWN AND DOWN.
REMEMBER OUR OPENING HOURS:
08:30 UNTIL 2:00 TUESDAY TO FRIDAY AND UNTIL 1:00 ON SATURDAY
WE MAY BE SMALL BUT WE KNOW HOW TO DO BIG THINGS…..
