Unique Floater Frames

We framed a Davy Brown painting on board in a unique floater frame called a Joan Mitchell floater, which has a high steeped edge.  Since the painting is on board, we gave it 1/2″ lift underneath, which can’t be seen but literally elevates the piece so it doesn’t rest directly on the frame giving it a bit of a shadow effect. Next we floated it 2″ to see all around in a unique Joan Mitchell floater frame in white. The high steep edge compliments the architectural landscape scene while also making it more contemporary.  A landscape painting can easily become traditional but we chose to make this piece more contemporary.
