WOW, Monkeyman. I love how some of these frames start with a basic theme and take it to a higher level. They're super ceative and I can tell you're NOT bothered with staying in the "safety" zone. As in "what the hell, let's do it"! Does that make sense??!!!?? That last one is over the top.

Flames look awesome MM, and the nose bone is great.
The frames are becoming the art work themselves.

That whole piece should be part of a gallery show in Hollywood. Great job of enhancing the painting and creating a whole new piece of artwork by joining it with your frame. Super carving and painting job, MM!

That is one beautiful frame. Even makes Flounder's brush strokes look good.
I'm glad he gave up painting tikis ('cause I own one of his now incredibly rare and fantastic tiki burlaps!)

I am working on a website right now with Unga Bunga that hopefully shoule be ready within the next month or so.

I am planning on putting up a "How its done" page that will show you the various stages of the process. Its my hope that those of you with artistic interest will find that information helpful and intruiging.

It tracks the process from wood selection, to milling the frame, mitre cutting, frame assembly, sketching, carving, painting, finishing and art installation.

I am hardly an expert on the topic but I do enjoy sharing information with those who are interested.

Keep your eyes peeled for more work from me. I have lots of frame customers waiting...

Hey man - love to see that website! I would be really interested to see how you do those frames. I would like to have a go, but I think my efforts would be a bit plainer in comparison to your artwork! You could make a white piece of paper look good!

Monkeyman, that is one of the coolest frames I have ever seen. The bone is a nice touch. Great job!
