Today's painting is the second in my Yellow Wall series. Now I'm debating framing. Each of these paintings was created on a stretched canvas painted on the sides and stapled on the back. Many people like canvases with back staples and painted sides because framing is not considered necessary. I've hung several paintings in this manner and the lack of additional framing cost does feel pretty good, but I still think paintings without frames look unfinished. In my opinion, framing finishes the work, but it must be completede carefully. A bad frame will make a good piece of art look bad, but a bad painting can look good in a great frame. I'm going to spend my morning looking at frames. I'm thinking a floater might be good for this series.
