Frames For Natural Art

Why imitate Nature when you can frame it?

This Idea was inspired by a cartoon (linked).

There are plenty of beautiful things in Nature, and many artists strive to copy that beauty onto canvas --but apparently such art cannot be properly appreciated unless the canvas is surrounded by a frame.

Well, then, why not simply frame the natural art, and save the intermediate effort of copying it to canvas? All we need the artist for is to select the best view of some naturally artistic thing, and then we build a nice big frame, so that anyone seeing that particular view, will see a nicely framed view.

That's all.

An example of frame-able natural art http://i.stack.imgur.com/SUvui.jpg
The cool thing here is that because the Moon always keeps the same face toward the Earth, the natural art can always be inside the boundaries of the frame, even while the art constantly changes! [Vernon, Aug 07 2016]

       I actually quite prefer those frameless frames you can get.

       Yes, they're excellent, and best of all, extremely cost-effective.   

       Hmmm ....
