Being a starving artist..i buy all my frames at thrift stores. sometimes the frame comes with (in my opinion) an ugly painting. so..what do you do with the painting on canvas if you are someone like myself who doesnt like to waste anything and takes pride in "recycling"? you take your exacto knife, cut the canvas off the stretcher bars and turn that ugly $1 painting into an interesting artistic floor mat! they are perfect in the kitchen in front of the sink... they can be wiped clean with water and last quit awhile!
