I frame all my paintings. The handmade frames are of my design. Using Japanese hand saws to cut the wood, an air powered pin nailer, and wood glue to assemble, I complete the frame.  The finish and color, which are chosen to complement the painting, were decided on prior to the final assembly.  I use a simple design so as not to distract the viewer from the painting.  Shown below are a few examples of my framed paintings.
