Quite often broken lobster pound slats that have drifted about the Bay, wash ashore in our cove. I hadn't paid much attention to them, but there are always possibilities.
My recent painting of a red lobster buoy in open ocean is an odd size, so a driftwood lobster pound slat seemed like a good candidate for framing the painting.
So I carefully cut out sections avoiding nail holes, mitred the corners and rabbetted a place to secure the painting, and viola! A Driftwood Frame.
The framed original painting will be for sale at my booth at the Rotary Community Market tomorrow, along with a few other originals and a whole lot of prints, map posters and note cards. See you there!
