When I am fortunate enough to create an artwork that I love. I’d like to be abel to display it nicely and affordably. I choose a size that can be displayed in a mat size that will fit a standard size frame. They can be purchased at a much lower price than a custom frame. The average person can also accomplish mounting the mated artwork in a standard frame.
I use acid free professional grade watercolor paper, acid free backing board and acid free mats to protect the artwork.
All my artwork is mounted and mated in a neutral colored mat. You can choose to frame it as is in a standard size frame. You may also chose to go with custom framing if you wish.
Here's an example of a 5" x 7" watercolor mounted in an 8" x !0" neutral mat ready to be framed in a readily available 8" x 10" standard size frame and hung on your wall.
