Buff Black

Buff Black Photography

www.buffblackphotography.com

Buff is drawn to apparent opposites – cityscape magic and wilderness grandeur. Here at home, his scenes of Bellingham, the North Cascades, and pastoral Whatcom County have been well received by an eclectic mix of local cafes, businesses, and nonprofits (including Futurewise and Sustainable Connections). On the urban flipside, Buff captures the ‘moods of metropolis’ in his big-city skylines, including Chicago and Washington DC, which are now featured in the postcards, posters and calendars of Impact Photographics, America’s leading postcard publisher.

Bellingham Frameworks is top drawer, no dust. Owner Paul Hemminger and his crew have helped me meet some tough crunch deadlines, all with good humor and wit. His rendering of my big images onto canvas has been exceptional, creating vibrant and impactful photos ready for show. In a recent interchange with Paul, we chuckled about how he is not yet a god – but he is a superhero.

Candace Buethorn

Buethorn Watercolor Studio

www.cnbuethorn.com

Watercolor artist Candace N. Buethorn paints from life or her own sketches from life, never from photographs. Her landscapes capture the moment and atmosphere in her gestural, signature style. “Watercolor continues to surprise me”, says Buethorn. “I love to pretend to have some control over this juicy medium, all the while knowing I’m on the edge of chaos.”

I have worked with Bellingham Frameworks for years and am always impressed with their creativity and quality of work. They are quick and take the utmost care in framing my work so that I am able to proudly display it in my new gallery or other locations around the region.

John D’Onofrio’s photography explores the forms, textures and colors of the natural world. Trained as a painter, his work has been widely exhibited and has appeared in calendars and magazines, been utilized in the film and television industry and by North Cascades National Park and the U.S. Forest Service.

I’ve used Bellingham Frameworks exclusively for many years. They immediately understood the aesthetic that I was after and have done an impeccable job of presenting my work. I have depended on them time and time again to meet deadlines and they’ve never let me down. And they’re great folks!

Clifford Creations

Capturing moments of grace through my art is my life’s work. Rich luminous layers of color create dreamy, mysterious or whimsical landscapes. I am a multi-media artist. I use paint as my primary medium but I use whatever medium that best tells the story –film, illustration, sculpture and writing.

I love working with Bellingham Frameworks. I take all my framing needs to them. They are fast, high quality and work within my budget. When I have framing challenges, they help me solve my problems. And they are a whole lot of fun, a pleasure to work with!

Lisa McShane

www.lisamcshane.com

Lisa captures the sweeping landscapes of the American west with a focus on the places she loves best: the Palouse, coulees, eroded hills and roads of Eastern Washington and the lakes and rivers of Western Washington. Her deeply layered luminous oil paintings capture a profound love of the wide-open land.

One of her paintings, The Sun Sets on the Slope of the Horse Heaven Hills, was recently selected for the Art in Embassies program and will be on exhibit in the American Embassy in Yemen for the next several years. You can see her work at the Roby/King Gallery in Bainbridge and the Smith and Vallee Gallery in Edison.

I refer local clients to Bellingham Frameworks and I’ve been really pleased with the results. They come away with high quality framing that makes my art shine.

He also photographs landscapes, gardens, and native plants throughout the Pacific Northwest with an eye to detail and the natural beauty of our region.

Ruthie V.

Raw gestural works on canvas, linen, and paper. I try to convey as much meaning with as few brush strokes as possible, and most of my work is built around strong concepts.

Frameworks knows how to make my work look it’s best. Paul has a great eye for quality and style.
