A New Blog!

Frederick Harer signature from a frame on a Daniel Garber painting.

I've started a new blog, as a repository for images of labels, or signatures, on old picture frames, of the maker of the frame. http://pictureframelabels.blogspot.com/

I'm trying to make it open to other authors, but you will need to contact me, so I can add you, or just email me photos and information. Gradually, I will add links to authors own sites. Meanwhile, any additional information about the frame and label is welcome. Also, ideas on how to improve the "Label" blog are welcome as well.




Lincoln at Antietem

In the Darkest Hour
Nathan Greene

This is an image of one of a pair of frames that I did last summer, showing the the painting and frame together. There are a lot of photos, and posts, of the process of the two frames.

There are other postings about the painting itself, and Nathan's thoughts about the painting.

To find my older posts about the Lincoln frames, click on the "Frames" label, and scroll down, or click on "Lincoln Frames".



Grave site of Schuyler Colfax, Speaker of the House of Representatives, at the time of the battle of Gettysburg. Colfax later was Vice-President in US Grant's first term as President.

 The entrance gate to the Old City Cemetery, South Bend, IN., where the Colfax grave lies.

The Battle of Gettysburg, July 1st. to July 3rd., 1863, figuratively the "High Water Mark" for the Confederacy, although many believe Antietam was a more important turning point in the war.
