Clyde Aspevig, “Wyoming Vista”

N.d. Oil on canvas, 18″ x 24″. Framed in a carved mitered frame No 411 CV — 3″ in quartersawn white oak frame with Medieval Oak stain and a slip finished with bronze wax.

It was a great honor to frame a painting by the renowned Clyde Aspevig.

I’m very pleased with the harmony of frame and painting—not only with respect to color but also harmony of form and texture. Although we’ve made this flattened carved cushion profile, No. 411 CV, for several paintings in the past, it’s never been better suited and alive to a painting than it is here. I love how the cushion repeats the shape of the low rounded hills, and how the 2:3:1 molding proportions extend and enhance the great depth and perspective of this work expressing Mr. Aspevig’s reverence for Big Sky country and “a lifelong relationship with the living land—an ever-present friend.”
