23 August 2017 A frame shop was going out of business and my friend Paul suggested that I stop by. I do use a lot of frames in my work but, as always, the trick is trying to get them to “work” together… not to mention, fit together. With a broken brass frame that was unloved and ready to be thrown out, and two frames that almost fit, I had all of the ingredients for another Foundling.


Visiting another framer, Greg, from the Barnes Gallery in Garden City, helped me “adjust” the inner frame to fit. Greg’s skill and resources have been invaluable to me, and my Foundlings, more times then I can count. To both Greg and Paul, I say thank you.
