Here’s the second of three posts showing our recent framing of three Karima Cammell egg tempera portrait paintings. As I mentioned in the last post, Karima’s affection for the decorative arts, much evident in the model’s clothes and background, is a great cue for the frame-maker. This frame, like the one posted yesterday, is in stained walnut. The flat mitered frame, which is a 2″ wide profile, was designed to extend the flat surface of the wall behind the girl and her dog, but brought forward in proportion to serve as a suitable window. Then I made it alive to the painting by carving it with a “V” pattern that’s an enlarged and simplified take on the patterns of the wall and rug.
