081206 Frame test for Garden of Giants

I've been pondering whether I should buy a frame for Larmes de Joie au Jardin des Géantes, or make one myself. The question of which frame style to pick from must be taken seriously. I've been hesitating between a dark, baroque frame that would enhance the luminosity of the painting. Or, a heavy, rusty metallic frame that would respond to the reddish armatures of the garden's dome, and would be also consistent with the one I already built with my father for Sous la Rouille.
The picture above is a sample photographed at the framing shop tested against a print of the painting. The estimate I asked for said slightly more than 800€, which is quite an amount.*Sigh* ...

800 personally is more than worth for framing this beauty of art, besides you'll be paid back from your arts =] I'd like to see a cross reference of what Tears of Joy in the Garden of Giants would look like in the rusty metallic frame... Good luck!
