which will look smashing with the 2008 Faile piece Sinful Pleasures in Blue (#01/02) ...

It's been a very good week for me ... and trust me when I write that I needed one.
Couldnt agree more regarding Hush's earlier anime -style pieces....much prefer them to his latest direction.

Congrats treweman..bet the OG cost you a bit? Gallery purchase or private?

Even the anime prints are quite costly, so an OG even more so....i'm jealous.

Finally got my frames in. Unfortunately, need to wait for the replacement prints now.

Did a quick throw together. Thinking a light blue mat underneath (lighter than the one shown, this is all I had on hand).

Part of me is saying go with a bright red though. We shall see.

I am not a fan of mats that draw the eye away from an image. With as much color and complexity as there is in the Three Sirens piece, I think any brightly colored mat (thinking the suggested red) would be a mistake. My general rule of thumb is plain and simple with complex and large images, and more creativity with simpler and/or smaller pieces. Just my 2 cents.

Yeah. And I think that's why I logically want to go with a lighter blue. A more calming choice.

Both of mine have corner damage / soft corners. One has some light edge ruffles. One has a creased corner. Minor in the scheme of things, but also unacceptable. Being I want to float them, not much of an option but to have them replaced.

I think that light blue really mutes the vibrant colors of the print. I don't know if a bright red is the solution but I bet it would look 100% better than that blue. Maybe a rich royal blue similar to some of the blues in the print? Fun to think about...

For sure. I want to use a lighter but more saturated blue. Intending to match the light blue in the print.

We opted for the white hardwood frame on the Siren release. Look incredible.

We still have one set available danny@unit-44.com

^ I like that a lot, but think I'd have gone with a black background to contrast the white frame.

I took your pic and did some quick photoshop work. Just changed the color of the matte so we can get an impression. Here's some examples what it could look like (very light blue, grey, brown):

Here are another three examples (yellow, white and a dark red). I'm not completly satisfied with the results. In the moment I'm considering to frame my single siren with a black matte and some kind of silver (?) or even golden (?) frame. Not sure though ... decisions to be made ... :wink:

totally makes sense. I wonder how long it'll take for them to reprint and replace though. such a nice print.
