Sword 10x8 oil on canvas in black frame

And each man stands with his face in the light. Of his own drawn sword, ready to do what a hero can.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning 








With or Without frame?

I often find that a black frame on a small painting is too overpowering, but this is so strong that it works just fine. I like the limited palette. nice work. BTW, I appreciated your comment about being drawn to my thumbnails. I'm a strong believer in simple, strong compositions, and your comment would indicate that I'm succeeding (at least some of the time). Thanks!
