The very first framing

I’ve never framed anything I’ve made before. I don’t know why that is, but I guess I haven’t felt that anything I’ve made have been worthy of a frame.

But there’s a first time for everything, and today I decided I would put my very first painting behind glass (or plastic, that is..).

I bought some cheap frames from Ikea recently, as I guess I deep inside felt that my first framing was near.

This is the painting I decided to frame:

Suburban street 2

And here it is mounted:

I have to say that putting a frame on a painting does make it look better. And it was kind of nice giving it a new life behind an actual frame.

I don’t know if I’ll hang it up somewhere, but for now it sits gently on my work table with a bunch of unused frames.

Hopefully more of my painting will migrate to them in the future.
