The impact of tall slender pieces and tiny paintings with large mats

We are all accustomed to pieces of art being of a certain proportion, often rectangular, and often framed in the same way.  But sometimes it is nice to shake up the norm. We recently framed a couple of beautiful tall, slender paintings that look spectacular! We also framed some tiny scenic paintings in the center of much larger mats, and instead of being lost on a wall, these pieces will be much more impactful!

Epic Framing of Historic Cotton Sacks!!

We recently had the privilege of framing three large historic cotton sacks! This was no easy task, as each bag required pinning to a backing board, construction of a large deep shadow-box type frame, and due to the size, the use of plexiglass. We think the pieces turned out wonderfully!

Here are all three with Hunter Hart, Saxon Wilson, and Mark Wood in front to show the size.

Always busy, Always Framing!

The right mat and frame can truly enhance your artwork! 

 A simple and elegant black frame with an off white mat works well with this watercolor painting. 

Hunter Hart's exceptional photography is shown off to perfection here with triple mat  and beautiful wooden frame

Another gorgeous photo by Hunter Hart

We can easily frame multiple items in one frame, such as in this piece

The vibrant colors from Water's palette is the focal point with the off white frame and gray mat
