Matting, Mounting and Framing
With the exception of large paintings, most paintings come mounted on a sturdy foamcore backing and matted with quality Bainbridge or Crescent matboard. Fillets (the orange border of the mat surrounding the painting seen above) are colored with a hue present in the piece. Frames are made of anodized black aluminum and come as "flats," "rounds," or as "scoops" like the frame seen above. Dimensions listed for each painting represent the size of the image itself, not its surrounding frame.
Prints 13" x 11" and smaller are not framed; however, they do come mounted on a sturdy foamcore backing and are matted with quality Bainbridge or Crescent matboard. Fillets are not colored. Prints released in limited editions are numbered and signed.
Large Custom Color Prints
Large, custom color prints are contrast masked, dodged and burned by hand, producing an image not only excellent in and of itself, but also well representative of the original painting. Each is finished with a protective coating which adds protection against fading and allows the surface to be wiped clean of thumb prints or dust. All prints in this category are reproduced in a single limited edition. All are signed and numbered Because of individual tastes in framing large works of art, custom color prints are not mounted, matted, or framed.
