Worthless frame: priceless art

The Former Frame

Don’t you just love road-side bounty?  I found a discarded picture with moulded ornate frame and quelle tragique faded print by the road the other day, and decided it needed a new home.  I discarded the print then spray painted the frame with abandon, replacing 0h-so-faux gold with benign and self-effacing cream.

When dry I plonked it on a spare nail to frame a rotating gallery of works on paper by young and upcoming artists:  It’s a pop-up gallery of kiddy masterpieces – the kind that only a mother could love but with added the gravitas of a frame.

The Final Frame
