Silly? Or am I?

Leaving an empty picture frame on the wall. Use your imagination, and with the other one next to it, you can create something that goes well with it. Is this silly or is it just me?

I've seen this before but with an empty frame, not the back board in it. I find that board distracting. And I don't think the frame has enough interest on its own. You would do this with something larger and more detailed.

Like the empty frame; like the print. Why not put the two together with a more interesting mat?

I don't feel that you are silly, but it does look like you were robbed. I agree that usually this effect is done with an empty frame - no back board - with some interest in itself as an art object. I don't feel this frame has that kind of power.

I agree with cali and Cynthia - I like the look but with an empty frame. I've generally seen it done in groupings as well - 3 or 4 frames in different sizes/shapes.

Maybe I'm behind the times, but to me seems like an unfinished project.

I've liked groupings of empty frames when they are in multiples of 3 or 5 or more. Have fun with empty frames! Consignment centers frequently have them at great prices. Leave them as they come or paint them all one color.

I like the look, some frames are a work of art in themselves. With the less elaborate, you could mount them on top of each other, or more overlapping each other in a smaller area and make it a "3-D Art Piece".
