Framing can be a challenge for us all. It’s expensive and there are so many options. If you paint on board or canvas, is it even necessary?
If you do decide to add a frame, what style works best? Today we’re going to delve into this topic, discuss our own approaches, and share some inside tips. We consider buying pre-made frames, having frames made online, and working with a professional framer. The discussion also covers cost and profit concerns and how to balance those with the desire to present your work most effectively.
What’s your experience with framing? Has it made or broken a sale for you? Do you like to frame everything the same? Please add your comment below.

We also talk titles after a listener asks: “How much importance do you attach to finding a good title for each painting and which comes first – the title (theme?) or the painting?” We discuss the importance of titles to our work and how we each approach them.
