It's been Coni's experience that many clients prefer that the artist
choose the frames for their portraits. Coni's frame supplier has developed
frames uniquely suited to Coni's painting style. Choice of moldings
is meant to accent the portrait while not distracting from the Subject.
If you choose to purchase a frame from the artist pricing can be requested.
All frames are manufactured here in the USA. A week or two before
Coni's return for the final sitting the frames are shipped to the
place of completion. It is requested that the box not be opened since
hardware and other materials may be misplaced.
At the final sitting, the likeness is reviewed and any final details
are added. The portrait is placed into the frame. It is requested
any changes be made at the time of completion.
Coni's sincerest wish is that all clients are fully satisfied.
