Framed Work

For decades we have been commissioned to create specialty panels for a variety of projects. These commissions have been as varied as: desk tops, door panels, game tables, entire walls, floors, picture and mirror frames, cabinet door inserts, coffee tables, bar fronts and tops, and many more...

As of late 2014 we are now excited about the area of fine art. It's defined as mixed media, but we like to call it "Art Different"!  Starting with tooling leather as the "canvas", Lisa begins by carving the leather and achieves texture that is beyond the range of painting. Then she sculpts the image to create additional relief beyond two dimensional.  Finally, she uses  traditional paints as well as dyes to enhance the image. Then Loren adds oil, antiquing, and a finish to give it depth and richness. All paintings are mounted on an archival backboard before framing.

          "The Boss"                14" X 42"               $3800                   Mixed media on leather

  We used a very unique process on this piece. The subject and the frame are all one piece of leather! The longhorn is sculpted, and painted. The leather continues over the frame for more sculpting  and then additional tooling is done on the flat edge of the frame. Truly a one-of-a-kind!
