Sorry for the repeat shots. I thought the difference between just incandescent lighting and incandescent and fluorescent lighting was interesting. The second and fifth are incadescent alone. I’m shooting in the dark, umm both metaphorically and in reality. Hooray for the equinox. The days are getting longer and brighter and better up here (now if that would only happen with my photography). A little blurry in the low light. Maybe I need to buy a tripod.

These are my aunt’s etchings. Her gallery is here (well in PEI actually): http://www.studiogallery.ca/df/df_main6.html

Frames are mortise and tennoned walnut, all hand tools but for a little (ok alot) of bandsaw work. Danish oil and wax finish. I like the tall one, I think I’ll play with this curved shape some more. I was trying for an Arts and Crafts look with the short one, not so happy with it. Someone said it looks like an Inukshuk. Northen Arts and Crafts… no… Arctic Arts and Crafts? Anyways, seems out of balance to me. More curve, less curve, thinner…?

Very nice! Maybe one large picture would balance out the shorter frame more so than the small pictures?

I don’t know how you’re gonna improve on those frames, but you do really good work and I figure you’ll get where you want to go with them. Thanks for sharing.
