This original painting by Caroline Richardson is framed in a hand finished frame and supplied with a certificate of authenticity. Hand finished frames give a unique character to an original painting as an almost infinite combination of profiles, finishes and colours are possible.
WHAT IS HAND FINISHED FRAMING?
Standard framing involves cutting and joining pre-finished mouldings to make the frame.
Hand finished framing requires a skilled craftsman who will first select a suitable frame profile which is cut and joined to make a bare wood frame. The frame is then finished using a combination of traditional and contemporary techniques and materials. Depending on the finish chosen a frame may take many days to complete as component layers are built up to achieve the desired result.
The result is a completely bespoke frame made to uniquely complement the original painting. To this end, no two hand finished frames are ever exactly the same.
For Caroline's work we have chosen a 10cm wide stained dark wood finish over which a wax is applied, with a 1.2cm gold slip.
Now painting full time, Caroline creates a mixture of figurative work and still life. She loves to depict dramatic light and shadow in a setting and is drawn to the by-gone days of glamour and sophistication.
