I wanted to share this example of what a wonderful difference the right frame can make for a painting. I call this watercolor "Afternoon Showers". I thought it was pretty, but too bland to be noticed much.
I decided to double mat the painting with a sharp black inner mat and a lighter gray inner mat. Then I made a beautiful dark and shiny frame, with gold-ish highlights and wonderful texture.
I think you'll agree that now the painting would really stand out on any wall, and is sure to get noticed.
