Hello -- Thought I'd get this last one in before the month ends. I had abandoned this one some time ago to attend other works but now it's done.
This is acrylic on a single sheet of canvas (for ease of shipping). I've been asked how one goes about framing a canvas sheet as opposed to canvas on stretcher bars, so I've included two images to illustrate how it would look once matted and framed. This can be done two ways: it can be stretched onto thin stretcher bars and then mounted into a traditional frame, or it can be treated as one would frame a print by adhering it to either a wood or cardboard backing to make it sturdy, then simply placing a mat and frame over that. (Don't recommend using a glass cover as this diminishes the impact regardless if it's non-reflective.) Any professional framer should be able to tackle it without mishap, and if you're a do-it-yourselfer, it's not too hard; I framed this one myself.
Anyone interested in purchasing contact me here. It measures approx. 22 x 16 inches. $120 U.S. + shipping.
