This is a large vintage/antique wood and gesso frame. It is in very good condition for its age.
I painted it in a homemade deep grey-taupe, with a hint of smokiness to it. Many frames that I paint come from the memory of seeing the most beautiful fire charred frame from an old farmhouse. The frame now housed a gorgeous old painting. It was surrounded by beautiful old pieces. It had that classic elegance mixed with old and weathered appearance. That is the feel I want this frame to have now.
You can see there are hints of white and gold showing through to give it that "dirty" effect. I also added just a hint of my liquid gold. The white and gold allow the smoky look to stand out.
