Squaring The Circle

I went into Cambridge last week to meet up with Johnathan to discuss the framing of my latest finished painting 'The Wasp and the Ring'.

As it's another circular canvas, I was keen for it to have a round frame as well. The subject matter is set in a night sky so I thought a charcoal grey frame might hint at  a telescopic view.

However, when Johnathan revealed the cost of my last circular frame, I was persuaded to have other ideas. I've had several circular frames made in the past and these have been outsourced  to someone with a machine for cutting them cheaply.

As this is no longer possible, the new frame will be a square though  the inside could be made  more rounded with sections of wood.
