“Woodland Scene IV”- Original painting by MJ Seal. Acrylic on board, 14″ x 11″. C. 2017

For this low-key painting I chose a frame I had made from a Dutch-style reverse molding with a distressed black finish and antiqued gold lip.

“Woodland Scene II”- Original painting by MJ Seal. Acrylic on board, 10 1/4″ x 8 3/8″. C. 2017

For this piece I chose a more simple, modern molding profile that I veneered with Wenge wood.

For this frame I water gilt a rounded oak molding with white gold leaf. It has a nice warm-silvery color which cools down the painting and I love the texture of the wood grain underneath the very thin gold leaf.
