Cherry & Poplar Portrait Frame

Bertram Whitford > Portfolio > Frames > Cherry & Poplar Portrait Frame

A simple yet beautiful frame for a marvellous portrait of a wonderful man. Alan was the librarian at Wimbledon tennis club and this portrait was painted of him by artist Beka Smith for his retirement.

Perhaps my favourite frame that I’ve made; the gentle hues of the oft-overlooked hardwood poplar combine with the rich colour of cherry to pick out Alan’s features amongst the backdrop of books.

Finished in satin oil wax.
