Jon,
I have been following your work for about 6 months now.  I am not an artist by any means, but my son brought this painting home from preschool (he is 4) and I thought it worthy of a frame.

I had found this wood on a pallet (I use them for all kinds of stuff) a long time ago and was just waiting for the right project for it.  Nothing fancy just a basic frame. I did add a red oak spline in the corners for some strength and contrast in color.

The wood in this frame reminds me of the beach. I now live inland in Virginia, but a few years ago I lived in Lanoka Harbor NJ just south of Toms River. I was there for Hurricane Sandy.

My inspiration to make this frame came from seeing some of your work. It is nice to relax from my day job and get in the shop and build something.
