This was my first attempt at Greene & Greene style wood working. I got inspiration for this piece, largely from Darrell Peart’s Seattle frame. The frame is built of sapele & ebony. The frame house’s an original water-colour my brother Matthew painted called: ‘Queens of the Salish Sea’.

The frame is really nice and does not take away from your brothers water color. Nice job!

A very interesting personal take here with the added asian flare and nice attention to detail.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

What a great frame. It is not only G&G but it has some timber frame elements in it. Fantastic craftsmanship.
