These are my first miter-dovetail frames. I am not happy with the glue lines, but I am getting better, with every frame. The Images are my subtractive drawings of graphite over textured acrylic gesso.

I don’t know which I like better…. the drawings or the frames. Excellent!

Very nice. I have never seen joinery like that before.

Do those dovetails run all the way through? I assume they do not but I cannot tell from the pictures.

thats a great joint, something a little different but not too much to take away from the paintings. Well done, maybe you can teach me- my first mitre joint sucked! And I haven’t tried since! :-0

Thanks for the compliments, I wish I could show more of my art work, but most of that is either metal working or privately commissioned pieces… AND I suck at photography so half my stuff isn’t even documented. I need to carve more wood… that gives me the most pleasure.

Fantastic artwork AND joinery. You are a real artisan.
