I would go with one of those and less color just because there is already so much going on in the print color wise.

I agree with the above posts, any more colors and the matts would distract from the image, love the moulding on the 2nd one.

nimsu8, those mockups look great...I realy like the clean look of the first frame since the print has so much going on, but yeah, you never go wrong with whatever Corey's 1st choice is :pint: .

Nice mockups on the MBW. I actually just had the exact same conversation with Corey about my MBW Life is Beautiful he is working on. He came back with more color options but none of them felt right. With the colorful print, the less colorful mats worked a lot better.

Going with my first choice isn't always the best option. There are some clear cases where pushing me a bit in one direction or another based on a clients personal tastes led to something unexpected and wonderful. The overly doodled Phish Emek is a good example. That client was sure I had something more to offer for such an amazing print. That's why good communication with your framer is so important. Sometimes my first inclination is best, sometimes I need to pick the client's brain a bit to focus my own vision.

Ummm, bbbrrraaaains... :drool:

have you had anyone hate one of your pieces where they get it back and are disgusted with it? just curious how that would play out

Not that I know of. If it did, we'd resolve the situation.

I can say Corey is beyond patient. As long as you are patient, realistic, and keep up the communication he is willing to work on tons of different options and angles. I think for one thing I had framed the choice ended up being like number 13 or something.
