Sitting on a Shelf
Original Still Life Oil Painting with Vintage Italian Frame

         I actually designed this painting for the frame it is in.  A friend of mine in Florence, Italy, alerted me to an Italian friend of hers who restores frames.  His dream was to take his business to a new level by moving to New York City.  For this reason he was holding a fundraiser and I decided to help out by buying this antique frame he had up for sale.  He wrapped a random bed sheet over part of the frame as a cushion for my shoulder and I carried the frame home on my bike in Florence, Italy.  It looks as if the wood was first painted red and then painted over that with a lovely metallic layer, and then distressed a bit.

        The frame sat around in my studio for a while, but eventually I ordered some stretcher bars and bought a piece of primed linen canvas to fit, creating a composition with a little bit of red in it to compliment without overpowering anything.  I really enjoyed the textures of the headless puppet sitting on a shelf with lots of old books.  This was a joy to paint!
