Cannon Heath Down (7): Framed

I'm quite excited; today, I received a large, flattish parcel with four frames in it. They've come all the way from Cornwall (quite fitting, considering that the other three frames are all destined to surround paintings of that glorious county). The frames are all from Moonshine Framing's Driftwood range; this particular one is the clear wax version.

I ordered my frames according to the stated size of the canvases; lazily, I didn't measure the actual objects. Moonshine produced frames that were dead on the requested size, which meant that the fit was ... a bit snug, to say the least. Fortunately, the frames are proper wood, so a little light sanding fixed that problem.

The original post for this painting can be found here; other framed paintings should appear in this list.

I haven't mastered the art of photographing paintings. Usually I just rotatethe image as best as I can, and crop the edges that aren't square. This time, I've blanked out the wonky background so that you can see the whole of the frame. I've also applied an auto white balance, which I think shows the colours better than the image that I got straight from the camera.
