About Those Tommy Gun Toting Cupids
The Godfather frame on the original painting is inspired by the frescoed frames created by 18th century Italian painter Giambattist Tiepolo. Starting with an ornate solid wood frame, I embellished with cupids and other relevant icons from The Godfather movie to create a frame that adds a whole new dimension to the painting. I originally planned give the frame a gold and plastered feel, but decided instead on the rich brown and red tones of the painting itself. We are considering casting the frame, but as yet are undecided.
