|Picture Framing Magazine August 2011|
At first they didn't seem to excited about this article so I let it lie. I sent them some photographs of Diane's paintings in the frame and explained what I had in mind. I let it go and put it out of my mind and wouldn't you know it, they started pursuing me! The editor called several times from New Jersey and once again, writing and doing a photo series for the article really intrigued me. The process was long and pretty involved but Diane and I have decided that we're all about the process, it's equally important to us as the final result. During the discussions and emails with the editor I got a clear picture of what they wanted and formulated a plan to achieve that. Obviously, since the frames for Diane were already completed I needed to replicate the process and document it with photographs and text. This was done, I sent them a CD with about 25 pictures on it and also emailed the article to them. The article called me and we fine tuned it and now, here we have it, a 4 page article with 9 pictures illustration who to get from a raw piece of Oak to a finished frame --- what fun!
