Thoughts on framing, the unacknowledged orphan of the arts. Fruit from the fields of obscurity. Frames, art, techniques.
Whilst taking a small break, before starting to gesso one of the frames I'm working on, and checking some of the sites I frequent, I've noticed some "Zen yourself, redefine yourself" posts, and my response is puzzled; then sort of WTF. You can say fuck, it's alright. Here, some redemption.
Any way, as any kind of artist, you really need to let the barking of the dogs on the parade route wash off of you; not listen to Joe, but listen to yourself. Doesn't mean you can't reference the previous artists, or no plagiarism homage to other artists; just do your own work. Might not sell, but might be good work, better than doing only what will sell.

If you "borrow" stuff, at least credit me. Don’t be a woozle.
