“Kelp Greenling”

My latest custom framing job was to frame two pieces of artwork by Kathy Johnston, a well known artist in Southern New Jersey. This is one limited edition print named “Kelp Greenling” by her from 1987. The other piece (which I’m finishing tomorrow) is a poster with her name at the bottom. I’ve never actually met her but her work lines the walls where my office is inside the Tuckahoe Field Office for NJ Fish & Wildlife’s ENSP. She did a series of posters that showcase the diverse wildlife found in New Jersey.

The wood was sanded with 100 & 220 grit sandpaper then stained black, which brings out the natural coloration of the wood grain.

The salvaged cedar was ripped and the old groove from the wall board was used to hold the glass and artwork. & copy; Ben Wurst
