"Prairie"™ Plein Air Frame


Designed by Carl Judson for small-format plein air paintings, these beautifully crafted hardwood frames provide a welcome alternative to the same old...

Often, small paintings need a wide frame to be displayed effectively, however Carl's PRAIRIE™ design achieves the same result, but with a much smaller footprint. The secret is the unusual depth of the frame. 

  • 2.25" Overall depth
  • Accommodates 1-1/2" deep stretched canvas
  • Painting sits 1/2" in from the front edge of frame
  • Black "mat" overlaps 1/4" on each side of painting
  • Beechwood with a pine liner
  • Smooth satin finish

Use these unique frames three different ways:

  • Hang on a wall (painlessly!). We have milled T-slots on the back for easy horizontal or vertical hanging.
  • Stand on a table or shelf.
  • Group together for multi-panel presentations.

Exclusive ArtGard™ heavy duty protective packaging.

The external dimensions of the Prairie Frames are 2" more than the size painting they hold, e.g. the 5x7 measures 7x9 and the 6x8 measures 8x10 on the outside.

Works with the Bear Claw Hanger.
