I've finished the piece and placed it in the frame, which is a cigar box. I just love cigar boxes, as they are an art form in and of themselves. With this one I took the decorative trim from the bottom of the box, cut and collaged it to the trim to 'frame' the painting. Items that belonged to heavenly BooBoo can go inside the box underneath the painting, or placed in front. Yesterday I entered a painting into a gallery show, NYC W 4th, using a cigar box as frame, and it got some positive attention, due in part to the unique frame. So give those cigar boxes a try sometime!
