Thinking Outside the Frame



I love art, but often the only thing green about a painting is the color of the paint! When I decided to frame some old wall hangings, I found it difficult to find frames that respect the planet. Luckily I was alerted to a new collection at the Painter's Place, which is a thriving, multi-generational, Bay Area family framing store that has been in business since 1966. The Painter's Place has three locations and an online presence (with pick-up, delivery and installation services) and a knack for churning out beautiful picture frames (I guess practice makes perfect in this case). And now they have reclaimed wood frames that are beautiful enough to set off a Miro.
