Framed Winds

Here she is! This is my framed The Winds of Color, designed by Elsa Parrish. Unfortunately, the mat colors didn't show up very well in the picture. The inner mat is a pale silver paper mat, and the outer mat is a very dark mauve suede. The frame is actually wooden, but painted silver with purpley-red streaks.

It took a very long time to find the right framing selection, and this was made worse by the need to visualize it as a circle! Overall, I'm very pleased! I haven't yet found a place for this to hang, but I don't have to worry about it yet. I really want to send this in to the exhibit at the ANG National Seminar. Wish me luck!

I like the framing a lot. I think you did well with it. This was fascinating to watch. I always wondered how all the various elements were done on this. Thank you for sharing and best of luck exhibiting it.

She looks even more stunning framed. The siler really sets off the vibrant colours in the piece itself. Well chosen!
