A few weeks ago, I showed you some of the pastel drawings in our home (my work included). I mentioned I was going to take the drawing of the three pears to be reframed. Well, I wanted to share with you the "before" and "after" photos. I think they are quite interesting.
And after ...
The drawing looks so much better in the new frame, don't you agree? The whole piece looks richer. It even has a slight antique quality to it.
I love how the frame's color and wood grain bring out the shadows in the drawing. The frame also complements the antique chair. For purposes of this photo, I sat the picture on the chair and positioned it to avoid reflection in the glass. The drawing now hangs on the wall above the chair and I think they look lovely together.
Here's detail of the new frame. It has an "old" look but is modern at the same time. I can't believe we didn't think to reframe this piece years ago!
Thanks for visiting! I hope everyone in the U.S. had a very happy Thanksgiving.
