Framing The Flag

Framing The Flag
This U.S. Marine that was stationed over in Afghanistan the day Osama Bin Laden was killed. He took this flag down in the town of Kandahar to symbolize mission completed.

This is such an emotionally charged piece, that this framing will surely be passed down for generations to come, always remembering the sacrifices that were made. (It doesn't show it very well in the picture but the flag has a 3D effect to it, giving the feel that it is still blowing in the wind)

This was a simple framing but this piece still draws me in making...

These two Picasso inspired, Morano Glass tiles were purchased in Italy during a family vacation.  Then they sat in a drawer for over a year.  She didn't forget about them, she just wasn't sure what to do with them. One of our frequent clients was a good friend of hers, they recommended she come see our local frame s...

The Bartelmo’s family portraits…

Carol wanted a family portrait for years, so when she finally convinced her husband to do it... they got TWO! The first one is a 30x40 Hand Tinted Portrait with a Larson Juhl Castilano frame and fillet (of course museum glass).  Just gorgeous. The 2nd one is for the family room.  It's natural color and will be hung in between two long series frames (top and bottom).  They include pictures of mom with each kid, and a dad series too. This 20x20 Square portrait is Natural Color and is framed in Roma's Stone Etched Bronze.  Complete with fillet and museum glass also.  Fun! Fun! Fun!
