thanks db. My bad bud, those are actually Chris Anthony prints. I was just showing them because i used the museum acrylic that another forum member was talking about. The pieces are apprx 18" x 45". Keyes has actually only painted a human being once, himself as a homeless guy with a shopping cart. Picking up Sowers is definitely going to be tough, but you should give it a shot anyway bud. I'm definitely going to.
Nice Anthony's you have there Steve!
We must be brothers from another mother, because i think you and i have the same art collection. Although, you do have more Hussars than me!
I still need to frame all my Hussars and Anthony's. That is going to be very expensive.
haha! Great to see someone with similar tastes in art. What Anthony's do you have bud? I've actually never met anyone with Chris Anthony artwork. In fact, it's safe to say that every time i've posted these pics on various art forums, i've always been asked "who's the artist?".
As far as framing goes: I find a lot of classical/baroque/ornate frames on ebay for really low prices. The frames look amazing, are well crafted and i literally can find them for under $100. Once you have the frame, it's a lot cheaper to take to a framer and pay for only the glass, matting and labor. I found that i saved a lot of money doing it that way. And to be honest, ebay has a lot more options for frames than any framer does. Just type in "baroque frame" or "ornate frame" etc on the search tab and you'll see a bunch come up. It may take a little digging to find the one you love, but it's definitely there.
