This is a companion piece to the vintage pen & ink drawing posted yesterday, showing more detail. The ivory French mat has a fine black drawn 1/2″ from the opening and another bolder black line 3/8″ from the first. The panel between the black lines is colored a soft blush hue to complement the delicate ink drawing of the dancers.
Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace;
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
And Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child must work for a living;
And the child born on a Sabbath day is blithe and bonny, and good and gay.

This hinged box was given as a gift to a collector of playing card decks. The lid displays face cards, aces and jokers in a frame made from moulding that has images of hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades on its face. I then used that same moulding turned on its side to construct a box deep enough to store several decks of cards. The interior was lined with suede fabric and a contrasting color of suede covers the bottom of the box.
This is a very timely article! Just last week I had a customer bring in a framed piece for repair which inspired a conversation concerning the perils of hanging art on an exterior wall or in contact with a heat vent.
New visitors admiring the amazing art in my shop always ask if I am the artist. My reply is that although everything is created locally, I am just “the framer”, which is a very simplistic title for the service I provide my customers. A fellow framer, Chris Chewning, has very thoughtfully and eloquently written what that title really means. Thank you, Chris!
