Robert O'Donnell  After 28 years as a picture frame manufacturer, I am now on my own and brokering deals for framers and galleries w/ the best frame makers nationwide!

More Friday Fun: Follow Your Arrow. Continuing our Prideful postings with another playful newbie from @wsgframes. When I asked Jim and Justin for a couple of Rainbow pieces to spotlight for Pride Month, the entire Wall Street gang went to town and literally flooded my inbox with Happy frame styles! This colorful faux mosaic is my favorite. I love the profile, the pattern design and that they thought to ‘ground’ the frame with a solid red edge up against the lavender remain. Joyful! .

Throwback Thursday: Dress Me Up or Dress Me Down. One of my favorite things to do at RPF was to approach a given frame style in a variety of finishes. It never ceased to amaze me how the “feel” of a carving drastically changes with the simple switch of gold leaf or by introducing colors and antiquing. This popular pair perfectly illustrates this phenomenon. Soft, subtle and elegant (left) becomes rustic, strong and ‘older’ with a few adjustments to the finish! Now that’s Custom! .

Woodlands Wednesday and the Fraternal Twins! Brian and Karen of @cedarowlframes just completed this matched set of walnut floaters with lightly tinted, maple accents. As the splines and inlays are pastel pink and aqua, I can’t help but speculate that these simple and elegant beauties are about to hold two very lucky baby portraits! And it’s nice to know that Brian really CAN make any client color work! .

Two More for Tuesday: “When I Grow Up...” One of the coolest aspects of frame manufacturing is getting the opportunity to play with the proportions of any given design. Sebastian and Hernan of @quattroframework also love this aspect of the job. They’ve got two of the industry’s best carvers and two top-notch carpenters on staff and the special projects keep everyone on their toes! And being open to such jobs often results in some awesome one-of-a-kind pieces! .

Two-Tone for Tuesday: Who says you have to pick just one? For the most part, custom gilded frames are leafed in either a yellow gold or a silver / white gold color. Through the years, adventurous souls have combined the two colors on the same frame to beautiful, if not more specific, results. Recently I’ve noticed a marked increase in the two-gold frames at @quattroframeworks. Sebastian confirmed that orders for leaf combos are on the rise. I’ve always been partial to left-of-center design so I’m excited to hear what y’all would use them for! #.

The Magic is in the Details. I’m definitely psyched. The response to this first piece from the New Traditions Collection by @cdnv has been overwhelmingly positive! I guess the notion of reapproaching historical design from a modern perspective isn’t so far fetched after all. As Chris, David, Valerie and the crew explore updating other American and European frame designs, the logical question is “What colors / combos do you think your clients would respond to?” @d_ankow has already tossed a few cool ideas at me but what say the rest of you? #mondaymotivation #wood #carved #handmade #art #handcarved #painted #wallart #twotone #black #clay #grey #lacquer #rub #louisxiii #design #new #combo #color #spectrum #custom #picture #frame #update #traditional #pattern #funky #interiordesign #like4like

Monday Magic: A Traditional Upgrade! For years I’ve been wanting to give true historical frames a makeover. As I see it, today’s generation is looking for simpler designs in home decor OR are willing to take the plunge on something more ornate as long as there’s a funky aspect to it. Taking a layered lacquer finish approach to classic frame design seemed the perfect solution! As such, I’m psyched to present the lead off ‘reborn’ design from the New Traditions Collection by @cdnv! This hand carved Louis XV frame takes on a whole new vibe with the semi-gloss grey over black rubbed finish. Game changer! #mondaymotivation #wood #handmade #carved #open #corner #floral #panel #traditional #historical #french #louisxiii #handcarved #color #black #clay #grey #lacquer #custom #creativity #picture #frame #woodworking #art #craftsmanship #upgrade #classic #interiordesign #like4like

Saturday Special: A Tiskit, a Tasket... I truly love historical frames that combine a variety of classic patterns. For instance, this 2 1/2” Hudson River School frame utilizes beadwork, traditional acanthus leaves and a beautiful, intricate basketweave cove panel. Together, these elements create a truly unique 7” x 8” picture frame! I gotta say that the deeper I delve into my friends’ vault, the more excited I get by the historical significance of this collection!

More Friday Fun: “Revenge of the Bears”. Were you to ask me what might work with this new @wsgframes Steampunk Copper frame (aside from a mirror!), I’d probably suggest something bold in either canvas or photo form. Perhaps even a cool multimedia piece that incorporates metals. I definitely wouldn’t think ‘illustration’ yet that’s exactly what Justin of WSG had in mind... and he was 100% right! Look at how the design just falls away and let’s the hunters get there comeuppance! So Cool! .

Fun Frame (& Mat) Friday: Taking Copper to the Next Level! At the NEPPFA show in Worcester, MA, I was psyched to debut this first entry into the new Steampunk Metals series from @wsgframes! Jim, Justin and the entire Madison Mayhem crew are always thinking. While working on this new frame, somebody said “That’d look so cool on the mat, too” and, VOILA! A new combo was born! This duo was obviously popular at the show and sets the stage for the rest of this new line. I cannot wait to see the sister pieces! .

TBT to “She does have a brother after all...!” A few years after Harry McCormick painted Lauren’s portrait, her brother @justinodon13 turned the same age that Lauren was in her painting. Since Harry had a son Justin’s age, we got the boys together and Harry snapped some very cool closeups. Lo and behold, Harry then gifted Ceci with a second keepsake! As this painting is smaller than Lauren’s, I decided to “Rembrandt” the canvas with a 5” wide, simple antiqued gold frame. Second heirloom complete! .
