I looked throught these postings before but I had to look through them again from the start. Even better then I remembered.

Yes, a how-to. I was wondering how you got the small differences to color from the high -low spots. Yes those frame turn the 2D painting into a 3D mixed media masterpiece. Say that three times fast.

I just bought a new painting and you are the only guy I will let frame it. Also I got a couple of Swampfire prints that could use a simple smokey bamboo frame.

Hey Monkey, I just went to the frame shop today in my hometown and does it suck. They have only blonde "fake" bamboo or "fake" blonde gold which is worst. I want dark real bamboo. It would be for for a matted 12 by 14 and the carved one design(or carved picture) would be for a 7 by 10 and no matting . Just curious about the pricing. If you could PM me.

Monkeyman that is sweet! I love it, and look forward to placing it in its final resting spot on the wall.

Your technique and talent seem to improve with every frame you do.

Thanks again to you and Founder, I feel lucky to have your guys art hang in our house.

Cool frame man. Love the flowers - really makes the art pop and provides a good contrast witht the bright colours and the 3Dness, whilst not taking anything away from the art. Cool

Great work, Monkeyman. I really like the way the painted accents look.

Monkeyman, this one is really Beautiful. The carving is exquisite(or how ever you spell it) and the colors are truely unbelievable. Not too bright or too dull, just perfect. The only problem with this frame is that unless you are framing a FLOUNDERart piece, it may overpower the art.I may need a Frame for my frame. You REALLY NEED to do some stand-alone carvings. Your art has really gone through the roof.

I find myself anxiously awaiting the next piece. Wondering what you're going to do next?? I love the plumeria and I'd have to say you nailed the leaves!

Great job again.

Your frames are kick'en some serious ass Monkeyman. I'm sorry but I'm glad you lost your desk job a year ago. Man that sounds awful but you know what I mean.
So how many of my burlap's have you framed now? I think they compliment one another very well.

Everyone,
Thank you for your continued compliments and support.

Benzart,
I suppose I could try and do a standalone carving but its so much easier to ship a frame across the country than a pole. And besides, everyone has room for a picture frame in their home.

Flounder,
I think that I have framed about 6 Flounder pieces and I have one more I'm working on right now. I agree, that the burlaps and frames end up being very complimentary with one another. Keep in mind that I am designing the frame AROUND the art so they are supposed to compliment eachother (hopefully).

I have 3 TikiTony originals that I also will be working on soon.

Theres also a Miles Thompson piece in the next several orders.

It gives me great satisfaction to create and collaborate with my freinds.

The next frame should be done within the next few days
