I have had this unusual frame for years and I also have another one similar as this one. Those are Italian window frames reproductions, which I found very cheap at Michael's on a clearance bin. I cut my canvas gator board to fit, and just couldn't decided how to make it work. Its very small about 7x5. So one day in january looking at this gourd I came up with the vision of just placing the gourd hanging over the edge to create the tromphe oilel (spell???) effect... I added more in the bacground to keep the eyes in the painting... I guess it worked.
