Just completed a couple frames, nothing special but I like the choices the client and I came up with.
Nice Job! I'm liking small liners on oils more and more. My customers seem to be liking the idea too. The wider linen seems to be "out of style," but a small liner in a "non-white" color seems to be just the right touch sometimes. Is the first one a Roma?
Nicely done, Randy. I like the liner. We had a discussion recently about whether or not they were passe', but used well there is definitely a place for them, and this is a great example. I have sold more in the past 12 months than in the last 12 years, all of them small.
My aesthetic is, large frame small liner, small frame large liner. Probably pretty standard I assume. I too have sold more liners in the past year than the past 17 I have been in business for myself.
The first liner is Larson Juhl Flax #423964, the second one with gold lip is from Raphael's, and I had a heck of time finding one that was not discontinued!
Liners will always be 'just the thing' for some pieces, in my opinion.
Like your watermark too! In this pinterest world, I think that's a good idea for some projects.
Do you straighten your photos of framed art in Picassa? I have Picassa but give my images to my "sig other" the graphic designer to tweak. I don't know Photoshop and really have too much on my plate to learn it now. I especially like how you put your shop name into the image.
I've been using Picnik for over a year and really like it. The stand alone site will be going away since it is now integrated with Google+.
It is very easy to straighten anything in that.
'Gimp' is a free program that does almost everything that Photoshop does including correction of barrel distortion, pincushion distortion and perspective distortion. There are You-Tube video tutorials that show how to do it.
