Here, we show you how, using examples from the American Frame Art Gallery, where working artists can exhibit and sell their work for free with our support. Each image featured here is available for purchase and can be custom printed and framed to your liking.

A simple way to introduce these colors into your framing treatments is with the use of an inner mat. We used Riviera Red between two French White mats on this work, Whirling Dervish by Stanly Shur.

On the painting Running Free by Gina Miller, we used a dark blue inner mat called Night Time with a cool white top mat and a blue frame, Radius Indigo. The mats and frame all have a similar tone creating a monochromatic look that coordinates with the painting.

With a large vibrant piece like Lava Lamp by Melodye Murphy, the choice is simple! This bright red color in a narrow profile, Standard Plus Three Tornado Red SP3227 is the perfect finish with a neutral white mat.

For Marblehead Light by Wanda Zuchowski-Schick, we used white on white to keep the piece feeling airy and open. The Shabby Chic French White frame works perfectly with the subject matter and offers a high end finish.
