Framed Vacation Memories
This frame started as an basic black shadowbox frame. Evie painted the bright lines on the top and sides of the frame. She added the map to the background and sides of the frame and painted an inner fillet bright yellow. Next she cut black foamcore to fit the photos and ticket, adhered them all to the foamcore and attached all to the back of the frame using spacers to give the 3 dimensional shadowing. She attached some special pins from the vacation and the frame was complete.

Don was a self taught artist who started working in stained glass over 40 years ago. Don’s carving of the Lord’s Prayer was done in many pieces that fit together with puzzle like precision.

Donald King had his family deeds, will and testaments, along with other important documents framed in the Sonora line of frame mouldings from Roma.
