Gilding a Spanish Style Picture Frame

I was awarded the commission to create a carved Spanish-style picture frame for a 1914 painting by Waldo Peirce for the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine. I was thrilled to get the commission.

Under a tight deadline to have the frame ready for installation in the galleries, non-stop work was needed. The sigh of relief came when the frame was complete and I was pleased with the toning!
