Frames

I'm preparing my upcoming expo and surely one of the most important things so that your public has a pleasant view onto your work should be the frame around the work.
My drawings are so small, mostly like a postcard, nothing more and I was searching a nice and honest idea for my works. First I thought to work with second hand frames (tough that will take me ages to find exactly those that I will like!) all different ones...but I think I founded it! It's very simple but looks strong although a little sensible cause I don't use glass to protect. I don't like glass! It gives me nerves all the time. So this is my try-out with the first drawing. I painted a background, made a frame out of wood, pasted those two together and then I bring some cardboard on the back of the drawing...that way the drawing is lifted from the background and a little shadow makes the drawing floating in the Aubergine-sea around it. Now, I know what to do next weeks ;)

Good idea!I like your way of framing your drawings, especialy that your drawings float.

You will be very busy next weeks. Enjoy it, it's so exiting to have an exhibition!
