Hey Chan

Welcome! :pint:

Kawasaki prints can be quite expensive to pick up second hand. But she has a beautiful open edition available on her site at the moment, if you’re looking to start collecting her work:

I liked the frame originally offered with "If Only You Were Here" so much, that I had my other prints framed the same way.

Very nice! I like that frame too. I also like your table art. I dig your style!

Picked this one up on the weekend. Excuse the poorly executed photos. The flash really killed the look of the frame.

Thanks, I guess the postcard threw me off. I kind of like the cropping more than the print version. Saves me money too :P

Nice choice! I'd say frame it how you want, but I'm a fan of the way Audrey basically does it.... no mat with an ornate frame.

I did a distressed frame and a very small 1in mat on page 1. Did it myself and I am very happy with the results.I believe I spent about $100 on materials including the frame , UV plexi and archival mat and backing.
