This is one of my spirit paintings.

More info about my frames:

"I find that antique or used frames, typically gold or silver leaf (but sometimes black!) with a bit of wear suit my paintings best. Some are very old, some are newer, but I've chosen each to suit my paintings specifically. 

I collect my frames from antique malls, thrift stores, estate sales and so on, and spend considerable energy cleaning and otherwise making them functional again. However, I don't attempt to repair chips, cracks and flakes as these are what I find give them the character my paintings require - in fact, I often start a painting with a certain frame in mind.

I aim for an 'aged,' and sophisticated appearance so my paintings will look like they have been living on your wall for a hundred years. Of course, if you have a different aesthetic in mind, I offer all of my paintings unframed as well."

More info about my painting:

"I want each painting I make to not only be beautiful and well executed, but to exhibit a high standard of craft and integrity.

There are a number of materials I use: Finished paintings which are on canvas, linen or specialty papers are mounted on hand cut panels using a combination of traditional techniques and modern best practices. Many works may be directly painted on prepared panels, wooden blocks or stretched canvas. I often prepare my own gesso in a traditional manner to prepare these surfaces. Every individual work has it's own necessities as to the texture of the surface, adhesion, absorbtion, 'flex' and so on.

I use high-quality, light fast pigments wherever possible, and protect the finished product with varnish. Still, it is a good idea to prevent long-term UV exposure of any artwork."
