I've just finished this frame. Original painting, rather weird but nicely done. I was quite uncertain on how to tackle it but I went with an idea and this is how it turned out. I'm quite pleased with it. 2" liner painted off-white. Center panel base-coated with black gesso and finger-textured. Covered with gilt varnish and rubbed back. Sort of beaten bronze effect. Edged with two angular mouldings that I have had for years. These look black but are very very very dark blue.
