My friend Cory works in the frame shop at Sam Flax and was kind enough to let me sit in there one lunchtime and sketch. I also met Jon who works there as well. In my day job, I've had to get a bunch of stuff framed and that's how we became friends. He's great at what he does and takes pride in choosing the right setting for a piece. I know because he framed one of my pieces for Nude Nite and made the choices for it. I break framing glass just about every time I try to frame something so when it counts, I pay for an expert.
The frame shop if very neat looking: stuff everywhere. It looks like possibility, like that special thrill I get when I go to Home Depot and see all those shelves and shelves of possibility.
