In "The Hunt for Bunnies, Down the Rabbit Hole with Painter Hunt Slonem," the artist discusses his choices of frames and how they influenced his work: "About thirty years ago, I had a show in Richmond, and I didn’t have money for contemporary frames. I was going to the flea market a lot so I started buying 19th century photo frames. There was a standard size 8×10. I started working in that size. The frames sort of changed the way I worked. I started buying gallons of white paint, and painting wet into wet. So it was a huge breakthrough for me: I started doing these little studies to fit the frames in wet on wet."
