Before and After: An Acrylic Painting on Watercolor Paper

This is an acrylic painting done by an aspiring art student as a birthday gift to her mom. It was done on a half sheet watercolor paper with a deckled edge. The goal in framing was to keep the lines simple and the focus on the bright colors of the painting. The customer chose to float the work on an acid free mat board: Alphamat 8463 Spanish White, using 1/4” acrylicspacers between the artwork and the glazing so the edges of the painting would remain visible within the frame. To give the art extra presence, the Canvas Plus Silver 2 ½” profile was used. The size of the piece was 22" x 30". We left 2" of the matboard revealed around the image for a finished size of 26" x 34". Finally a sheet of standard foam core was added in the back of the frame to provide extra stability. The result? A statement piece for a modern setting.
