I made this simple oak frame with leather matting, to go along with my photo of horse that had been turned out, and is running wild with many others on an abandoned RECLAIMED strip job. (c) 2010 by Robin Renee’

Pleasant piece.

Nice colors, textures and mood. It all fits together so well, very nice!

Nice frame, you have shown the grain beautifully. Like the photo, great to see the horses can retire in peace.

Such fine work.
And so wonderful to see you.
Is the pattern in the wood or the leather?

What a magnificent horse and beautiful frame, too!

The grain of the oak really compliments the horse’s markings.

Very nice frame…. I have to be honest and say, at first, I looked right past the frame to the photo. Did you take this? Beautifully ‘framed’ shot of a beautifully marked and proportioned horse.
