I've got this one Larsen Juhls frame that I really like that is a 16"X20" frame. I've bounced it around at various shows with different paintings and managed to hang on to it...well, I had 3 oof these frames in this size plus some more but all of those were sold over the years but not this one. I have 3 16"X20" paintings in various stages of drying and wanted to try them out in this frame....2 landscapes and this recent marine painting. I am only showing one of the landscapes here because they both seem to work with this frame so I'm showing the comparison with one of those and the marine painting.
I like the boat in this frame after all. I thought the boat would look better in a darker frame...a dark reddish undertone color (which really looks black until you get really close) or maybe just a black frame...distressed looking black, not flat or glossy black. After trying it out in this frame I think it is now a toss up. This is a 3" wide frame and is readily available from my local framers so ordering another frame wouldn't be a problem. They just order the style from their Larsen Juhl supplier and cut it down to my canvas size. I'd do it myself but I don't have the equipment to cut frame stock (mitresaw) or the other tool to join the corners. I'd look into ordering a black frame online but geeze once I start looking at frames it becomes and obsession.
