Original Orville Bulman Frames

   Orville Bulman chose his own frames carefully, and even painted his oils in the frames in order to determine how they would ultimately look. His signature frame from the late 1940s throughout the 1950s was a wide, rustic, casual, brown, gray or white washed natural wood frame. These frames could be as wide as a massive six inches including the liner, which would add depth and importance to the painting. What all the frames have in common is that they are all frames of substance. He certainly did not scrimp when it came to choosing the right frame for the right painting. There were to be no thin, skimpy metal or wood frames for Bulman! He continued with these types of frames, and added a French Impressionist style and even sometimes a Deco style to the mix which he applied to his work from the 1960s and throughout the 1970s. Bulman 's purpose was to extend the painting by surrounding it with the most pleasing, ample, and complimentary frame.
