Saturday Finds

Gotta love thrift shops, yard sales, and re-stores!

I bought two good size metal frames today. They are identical, each with the same picture of a peaceful line of trees casting long shadows under the glass. The prints are “fake art” as in mass produced, poster quality, framed prints sold to crinimal lawyers or doctors to match the decor in the waiting rooms.

I don’t care about the pictures… I just saw how the frames were made. They are the kind sold in pairs of framing parts in art supply stores, two pairs required to make a frame, with corner connectors and flat springs. A quick lookup in the blick catalog tells me that I just got over a $100 worth of frame parts for 17 bucks. Just the glass would cost more than that.

The only bad thing is you can’t wire up metal frames so I won’t be able to enter whatever I do with them into any art shows that require wood frames with screw eyes and hanging wire, but that’s okay. I like good metal frames. Especially black.

Yes, that is a two foot T-square resting on the frame in the photo. I had to quick measure, lol. Each frame is ye about 29 x 35 inches. Not bad, for Saturday finds.

Well, take care… love, peace, and all that happy jazz.
Make art!
