framing things

I have been focused on the business side of art lately. (With a bit of teaching prep thrown in!) And that meant frames this time!

I have listened to advice of experts and spent the time (and money) and framed quite a few of my pieces. Let's just say it's been a learning curve.... I have been adhering my embroideries to stretched canvas for a long time now, and then painting the edges, and I really love that look. So I was afraid that it would get spoiled in a frame. But it's just a matter of the right frame though... I went for simple and black, some shadow boxes, no glass, except for three little pieces that benefitted from mats also.

So here are some examples:
my dining room table production line...


you can see the three glassed and matted pieces here
I even framed two larger pieces. This is a corner of Iron Spine 4
Manhattan Bridge got framed
so did the Whitestone bridge

I really liked putting my abstracts on a white background and a shadow box.

Tappan Zee bridge got framed, I'm waiting patiently to do the new TZ soon!

Iron Spine 1 also got framed.
I am resisting putting these pieces up on my website as I have a few events coming up where they will up for sale. So if you're interested in these just shoot me an email! natalya@artbynatalya.com

They look terrific in frames. Fiber Artists want their work to be recognized as the art it is and I think that means framing and/or mounting it on a canvas, board, or some other surface. Here's hoping you're pieces sell fast!

So much beautiful work!! It looks fantastic in frames. I still love the look on stretched canvas too.

Your framing is a great addition and enhancement of your gorgeous work Natalya! Congrats!

Love the look of your art in frames! It has me thinking that I should do the same for my smaller fiber art pieces. Thanks for sharing!

Are your frames made by a local framer or are they a mass market item. They look like something I would be interested in purchasing for my works.

Darn, these look great! I want to do this. Or better yet, will you come to my studio and do it for me? xoxox
