Recently I posted about how to frame your artwork on a budget. This post is about how professional framing and presentation can bring out the best in your artwork.
This is also a follow up to a post I made in May about something different, a watercolor and India ink painting I created of Times Square at Night. An acquaintance saw the post and was thrilled. She and her husband had lived in the Theatre district near Times Square for nearly 30 years before moving to New Jersey. She bought the painting as a surprise for her husband’s birthday.
When I mailed it to her, I told her that I had planned on framing it with a white mat and black frame. This is what she and her framer came up with. SO much better than anything I had imagined. Professional framing really brings out the colors of the painting while displaying it to its best.
So, framing on a budget or professional framing, you choose.
