Great Sports Memorabilia Framing at Esprit Decor Gallery

Recently, a new client brought this autographed locker name panel for Arizona Diamondback first baseman Paul Goldschmidt in to be framed. The look was to be classy and just a little bit formal to go in the den. Using all archival components, we chose three museum boards to accentuate the colors in the name panel, and a lovely cap style furniture finish Studio moulding in a dark brown with a  black back to further emphasize and integrate the framing solution and the image.

The locker name panel was raised so that it floated above the black background, and the mats also had 3/16" spacers in between them to accentuate the depth and give the piece a shadow box effect. The final touch was to glaze the project with Tru-Vue Museum glass to reduce reflection and provide 99.7% UV protection. The finished piece will be a great conversation piece, and a fitting tribute to Goldie, a Diamondback great!

Bouquet from Monet's Garden by Pat Kofahl

Dappled early morning sunlight falls on a profusion of colorful blooms in Claude Monet's garden at Giverny. The gardens and lily pond, which Monet helped design, became an endless source of inspiration, and the subject of uncounted masterworks. They also bore witness to the evolution of his personal style as he transitioned from impressionism with it's small tight brushstrokes representing reflected light, to internal themes expressing feelings and emotions, with broader, more powerful strokes on increasingly larger canvases.This fine art image by Pat Kofahl is available in multiple sizes on paper, canvas, metal and plexiglass.
