Framing of paintings

Another completed bespoke framing, this time of a fine study of nesting gannets on St. Kilda by island artist Elaine Murray.

The painting was mounted behind archival quality antique white board in a white-painted/limewaxed wood frame.

I specialise in making frames to customers’ requirements: excellent art should have excellent presentation.

Please get in touch if you have artwork you want framed to the highest standard, whether it’s for your own walls or for giving as a gift.

Expansion in Stornoway

By John MacLean

 

A few of the photos documenting the start of the fitting-out of new offices for NFU Mutual at Cromwell Street Quay, Stornoway. Good to see long-established local businesses expanding into larger premises.

I will be returning at regular intervals to photograph the fitting-out until its completion.
