Framing Sam Hyde Harris

We just framed these three landscape oils by the gregarious and much loved southern California painter Sam Hyde Harris (1889-1977). On all three I played with outset corners, although on “Enclave,” the third one below, the outset corners are on the narrower mitered inner molding that’s set inside a plain mortise-and-tenon flat. All are quartersawn white oak. All three are available through California Historical Design in Alameda.

I hope Mr. Harris would approve. From the bio on the website of our friends at Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery, he sounds like a great guy!
