Creatively framing a picture!

This is a painting I did last year called "Peaceful Hide Away". It's an oil on canvas but rather than putting a traditional frame on this one I wanted to do something more creative. I wanted it to float above whatever I mounted it on but more than that I wanted to extend the painting off of the canvas. I came up with the idea of doing a diamond shaped frame and adding a background board that I could extend the painting on to.

This is what I came up with. The whole framed piece of art is 39 inches top to bottom and 70 inches side to side. It is framed with old barn wood.

Here is a photo of it from the side so you can see how the inner painting floats above the painted background on the board.
