framing experiment

18" x 24" oil on canvas covered hardboard - soon to be a sunset painted from a photo -
After "killing the white" on this canvas, I was searching for a frame thinking maybe I had one in stock I could use instead of buying another one. After popping the toned canvas into the frame, the 'painting' developed an instant personality. When painting in the studio, I will often try the unfinished piece in several frames - looking for that personality spark. And sometimes I'm surprised at how just a toned canvas can take on a certain look just by being viewed in a frame.
