Framed Friday: Carlo Russo

It's Friday again!  This week we are happy to feature a frame, and painting, by Carlo Russo.  Carlo is another one of our artists who makes his own frames.  Having been to his studio, and seen him working through this frame, we know how much he thinks about the color, profile, and finish on his frames.

Carlo Russo, 'Dreams of Ophelia', 22 x 29, Oil on Linen.

Carlo did an amazing job with the gold leaf detail.  The gold picks up on the browns and tans of the painting, playing off her skin tone perfectly.  The frame looks classic, even though it was only made a few months ago. 

If you haven't seen this painting or frame in person, be sure to stop by the gallery soon!  It's hanging in a prime spot behind the nook desk!
