Watercolors are recommended to be double or even triple-matted. This visually frames the artwork and draws the viewer's eye into the nuances of a watercolor.

It is common to leave only 1/8" or 1/4" of the inner mat visible when using more than one mat. The outer mat is often wider than the frame.

We often choose a darker color for the inner mat. This can be a color to bring out your favorite part of the artwork.

The outer mat bridges the frame and the matted art. I like to pick a lighter, creamy color that is compatible with the frame I've chosen.

Any frame store will be happy to help you!


You can frame your print at any size.

However, you can purchase pre-assembled frames for considerably less. ($30 vs. $100)
Standard frame sizes to consider are: 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20".

I've designed most of my art with a standard frame size in mind.


Your print (or original) will be happiest placed out of direct sunlight.
