Framing Lindsay Kustusch

I don’t typically show two such similar frames in a row on the blog, but it might be interesting to compare two similar frames on two very different paintings—two beautiful paintings in any case.Karl Yens painting This one, an oil on canvas called “Two Old Birds,” was commissioned by a couple as an anniversary gift to themselves. It’s 16″ x 24″. The artist is Lindsey Kustusch, and she’s remarkable; check out her site. The frame is a 3-1/2″ wide carved compound very much like the No. 16 CV + Cap 16 CV on the Karl Yens posted a few days ago (and shown at right). But Trevor added his own touch to the design with a stopped chamfer at the outside of the cap; the stops articulate the corners. We also gave it a carved gilt liner.
