Artomatic Show Prep: Framing

In preparation for Artomatic (a really cool art show in DC, opening May 18th), I'm in the middle of framing some new pieces. Thrift stores are a great place to pick up frames at a decent price- I picked this one up yesterday for my new Magic card painting, Rush of Blood:


  1. When I was visiting Rehs Galleries in New York City, I was told that many artists in the fine arts world can bump the price of their paintings by thousands of dollars, just by changing to a more beautiful frame.

    It's really amazing what good framing does, the one you found at the store was a great found.

    1. It really does make a difference having a good frame, for adding monetary value and giving you a better presentation. I wish I could afford to have all my pieces professionally framed, but until then I find secondhand frames are a good substitute!

  2. Is this an oil painting or digital print, Cynthia? Looks awesome...
