Framing Your Art

When buying my Watercolor paintings for your home, remember that matting and framing adds to the dimensions. You can purchase a very affordable 5" by 7" original watercolor, and the framed painting can be 11" by 14" or larger. You may view my original paintings section here. After you have your painting, picking the correct frame and matting is very important. You want to make your piece of Art stand out! Adding a thin color mat under a thick white mat frames the subject nicely.
