Having said I probably wouldn't, I have decided I would like to frame my prints. So I have been rushing around like a mad thing for the last couple of days trying to find frames that were reasonable quality without being horribly expensive... I had a nice frame from Habitat (which was a bit expensive) but of course Habitat are no more and all the good stuff has gone from our local store.  And I wanted to see before I bought so buying online wasn't really a possiblility either.  So this is the first attempt - sorry about the rubbish photos.  I like the size and shape but the frame colour is darker than I want and the mount is far too white... but I'm nearly there! Who would have thought that art would involve so much shopping?!

I'm pleased with this particular print, it captures the feel of our beach for me.

Here's a picture so you can see what I'm talking about...

  1. It's a lovely print and looks nice in the frame :) I always find framing difficult too, I've taken to looking in charity shops for good ones to restore, and have found some lovely ones in the past :)
