Robert O'Donnell  In ‘88 I became a picture frame designer and manufacturer. In 2015 I started brokering deals for framers/ galleries w/ the best boutique frame makers!

More Friday Fun: How the Picture Frame Got It’s Stripes. Marlowe of @blackrabbet is having a lot of fun with color-alternating striped frames this month! (Last month it was his Ribbon series.) This particular piece is for a client who ordered this exact color combo a couple of years back. Apparently you CAN have more than one of these colorful striped frames in your home!

Fun Frame Friday: Stripes are IN! My buddy Marlowe Hill of @blackrabbet has noticed an increase in orders for his Vibrant Stripe frames. Perhaps the art hitting the market is more playful and colorful or, just maybe, people are looking to bring happiness and joy back into their lives. Whatever the reason, I’m all for bringing color and light into every home! Smile!

Throwback to A(nother) Variation on a Theme. The crew of @wsgframes are always thinking. When a designer wanted a “fun-‘n-funky” mirror for a client’s powder room, Jim and Justin sketched out a few quirky ideas. Since ivory and oak were already present, it was a no-brained to rethink their own (hugely popular!) WSG Ivory Swirl frame design on a grander scale. The finished piece was so successful that they decided to make a second one for the shop!

TBT ... And the Winner Is...! Remember my @wsgframes post some time back showing the not-yet-finished samples (Top)? Well, I completely forgot to share the winning panel frame combo of (drumroll please) Walnut and Copper (Bottom)! Jim, Justin and the gang have been inundated with orders on their copper frames and mats since their Spring debut so it makes sense to expand the line. This narrow wood / metal combo is the perfect addition to this new line! And you know with this bunch that they’ve got much more in the pipeline! .

The Wednesday Welcome continues ... with the addition of the wholly unique Graphic Hicks line, @woodworksimagery is carving out its own niche in the closed-corner realm. Myles Balsamo is 5 years into this industry and ready for his voice to be heard! PS: If you been looking for purpleheart wood, it’s one of his favorites to work with!

A Warm Wednesday Welcome to The Frame Master Family: Heeeere’s Myles! I’ve been a fan of @woodworksimagery for a while but was waiting for Myles to take his line to the next level. When he started to ‘silkscreen’ patterns, that’s when his unique voice began to shine through! And after some brainstorming, Myles has created the Graphic Hicks Collection for his Frame Master debut! I’m truly excited to introduce the artistry and spirit of this California innovator to my industry family!

The Final Two for Tuesday (Part 3 of 3). When Framing a series of prints or drawings, it’s important to pick a frame that doesn’t overshadow the art. For his six commissioned flowers, @johnmatthewmoore and his client chose this @quattroframeworks stunner. The delicate carving and soft finish perfectly complement these pieces. A job well done!

Two More for Tuesday (Part 2 of 3). For six commissioned flowers, @johnmatthewmoore and his client chose this @quattroframeworks beauty but simplified and lightened it. It’s amazing how a few small design and finish changes to the frame can make all the difference in the world! Oh the joy of custom framing ...

Two for Tuesday in Triplicate! My friend (and amazing artist) @johnmatthewmoore had to complete and frame six of his signature florals for a client. For Matthew’s exquisite works on paper, his customer chose this carved (and modified) @quattroframeworks beauty. Obviously his client had a vision because the pairing [of art and frame] is perfection!

Monday Morning Majesty: Hang a Louis. Recently, a client asked for pictures of the @cdnv L15 3 CC frame. As it turns out, they had just completed one for another customer. Valerie sent me a bunch of images but this one is the best. The frame just exudes artistry and ability! The flow of the open carvings is even more astounding when you understand that every part of this frame was carved by hand! The gilding and finishing are also masterful but the hand-craftsmanship of the carving is what truly astounds me. Beautiful!

Fun Frame Friday: Godzilla!! On the heels of Comic Con, I‘ve been looking for comic art-specific pieces for today. This @cherrycreekcustomframing stunner definitely fits the bill! Clients came to them with the art and an @lego frame concept. It was up to the crack creatives at CCCF to bring the concept to life. And what an Awesome job they did! .

Throwback to a couple of Straight Arrows. When Geoffrey of @plasteelframes_gallery designed and launched his hand-crafted Arrow series, he hoped that others would like these walnut gems as much as he did. Well, the response was overwhelming and both the narrow and wide versions were a hit! Fast-forward to just over a year later and these stunners have cemented their places as No’s 6 and 9 in the Pacific Heritage Top 10! Good thing he “followed his arrow!”
