Picture framing but not as we know it!



Hi folks. Well, I've just survived the 2nd hurricane in my life, here in S.W. France over this weekend. (The first was in West Sussex in England on 16 October 1987). I just hope I never see the devastation of a third one. Huge oak trees were uprooted and tossed around like matchsticks, not to mention the loss of human life.
63 hours without electricity was a bind but we were luckier than some in this area so we have reason to be thankful. It is wonderful how the whole community comes together in times of mutual crisis too. Just a pity it takes a crisis.........
Anyway, to happier things. I have mentioned in the past about a lovely lady who does "picture framing". This term cannot possibly encapsulate her wonderfully imaginative creations. They are not about the central image but rather combine the whole piece, frame, image and surround. She decided to come on one of my craft workshops recently and brought some of her pieces with her so that I could photograph them to convey to you all just how stunning they are. I'm sure you'll agree with me that she is one very talented lady!

Forgot to say that the photos don't show the depth of these pictures. They are at least 1 inch deep with a special "box" crafted on the back of the frame to house the construction. Truly amazing!
