Crystal Tree frame color

This is an 11x11 inch two layer piece that will have a inset color lighted frame. I can't decide whether to leave it this ivory color pictured or paint it black. What do you think?

The upper layer is clear acrylic with 11 different crystals glued to it and it stands about a quarter inch from an acrylic painted surface. I.m including a couple different lighted colors and some unlighted.

So far all these frames have been black but maybe this could go ivory or even pink or pale green.... Help!!!

Re: Crystal Tree frame color

I had not seen something like this before. It's very attractive. Have you heard about philosophers Deleuze and Guattari's concept rhizome? Seeing the roots of your tree made me think about it.

Anyway, so I understand that what you're unsure about painting is just the frame, right? If that's the case, I personally think that it would look better in black... but that's just me.

Thank you for sharing your work.

Re: Crystal Tree frame color

Gerardo, I haven't heard of these philosophers or their concept but I will look it up. I am pleased that my work made you think of it. Thank you for saying so. I am also leaning towards black for the frame, but will think about it for another day.

This is a beautiful tree creation! I love the lighter color frame myself.

Re: Crystal Tree frame color

I am leaning towards a black frame. Do you have some photo-editing software that you could digitally try out all the different colors you're thinking of?

Re: Crystal Tree frame color

Hi! I wanted to post an update with the final pictures. It went up in the gallery at the Clio Center for the Arts today with others from the series. I have to admit it is my least favorite but I learned some stuff and I will use this method again with a better painting. I'm really sorry for posting so many pictures but it just looks SO different depending on the lighting and my camera is not the greatest.
