I had the privilege of getting to know Lyn Besse McGinnis (she is a singer and songwriter) before Christmas and she entrusted me with the framing of the artwork titled “Veil of Tamar” plus the framing of her of her release CD “Veil of Tamar” and the jacket.
We started with the piece of Art first. I suggested that we go with frames that were intricate in design to be reflect of the depth of culture of Tamar’s time (Biblical). We started with the outside moulding which worked but we felt that it was not enough – it brought out some of the image. I suggested an inside moulding (frame) that should be white. We tried various options but the one we chose drew your eye into the piece and the design added layers to the culture – Veil of Tamar – added layers – hidden.
The combination was breathtaking.
The CD was dressed with handmade paper with the lyrics of the song printed on it plus the same moulding that was used on the portrait of the “Veil of Tamar“. This use of the same moulding ties these two pieces together but also allows them to stand on their own.
