I could see it was a rough-cut Tuesday
Slow-motion weekdays stare me down
His perfect picture got me wound
"Freeze Frame" by J Geils
Joel is often asked why he does not sell framed paintings. Well, just like the artwork itself, the frame is up for interpretation.
These petite beauties are a tidy 4x6".
These pieces from the "Minumental" series were framed to be available for quick sale and shows. A nice, easy present - can be shipped to someone with no fuss or taken off a display wall and hung immediately at home.
Other pieces are not so simple. This pet portrait of a Maine Coon belongs to owners who have a defined Venetian style home. It wouldn't make sense for Joel to put the painting in a frame when they know exactly what looks best in their home and what appeals to their aesthetic.
This most recent piece, "Fenton's Landing" in Sunapee, New Hampshire, will be sold unframed but if the new owner wants a recommendation, Joel will bhappy to help. After all, father knows best!
