"Paris Color" Painting

I saw this painting on KSL and it really grabbed my attention.
And then when Mike brought it home we both knew we had found something that would be in our home for a long time!
The frame had a bit of damage down in the corner. Actually a chunk of the detail was gone. So Mike made a small mold of it and replaced the missing piece. My Mr. can fix anything!

Before AfterWe opted to paint the frame black and slightly distress it. The black frame accentuates all of the colors and they pop! It helps bring out so many of the details in the buildings and street.The frame has great detailing! I love frames with scroll work and delicate features! We do have an authenticity certificate for this painting that is quite interesing. The creator is Rence and he was born in 1922. He painted this piece in 1962 and titled it "Paris Color".
I love artwork that draws you in. Paintings that feel excitingly peaceful and make you just want to jump into the moment. This is one of those.

I will be revealing to more artwork over the next few days.

I just scored two vintage prints of Paris. Their frames are dreadful so I plan on re-framing them - I love that you painted the frame black - it does indeed make the colors pop. I just may be copying your idea - yours turned out beautiful! -diane

Great score on the painting, it is beautiful! You are right, the black frame actually elevates the whole painting to another level. Love the bright colors and texture, I'd keep this one, too!
