Framing My Elephant

When I travel, I love to bring back fun knick knacks from around the world. Often, they are items that can fit in my carry on bag: cloth, cards, rolled posters.

This last trip to Sri Lanka, I brought back an elephant pillow cover. Not one to have throw pillows, I decided to frame it.

Now framing my elephant is such a tough task – to get it just right, with background colors and format, frames, glass. It can be overwhelming.

Luckily, I’ve found the right guy to help me in this challenge. Habib, owner of International Art Gallery & Custom Framing.

He knows his colors, he feels his paper backing, he sees the end result even before it’s finished. Habib is an expert.

He also has art for sale, good art, way out of my price range too. Still, if you need to frame your elephant, there is no better place to go.
