The value of framing!

Framed! The final touch!
A painting always feels more finished - more presentable when the right frame is found,
the painting is secured in it, and finally it is displayed.
The wrong frame, however, can have the opposite effect.
What makes the frame the right one?
A lot depends on the picture being framed as well as the taste of the one who will display it.
But, here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. You do not want the frame to "speak" more loudly than the painting.
Simplicity is a good rule of thumb.
2. Consider the colors in the painting. What kind of frame enhances them best?
In this case a simple black frame.
3. Consider the style of the painting. This painting is more contemporary in style, so
a very sleek black frame seemed to work better than a natural wood colored one.
4. Finally, consider the subject matter in the painting. Depending on the subject, you may have a type of frame that is more appropriate than another.
Personal taste is also a factor, but the considerations above are perhaps more important guidelines.
Enjoy the process of choosing the right frame! The right frame makes a world of difference and puts that finishing touch on a lovely work of art!
