Abstract acrylic and oil painting
49 Posts
Hi Steven

That is a great painting.

I painted several oil paintings on canvases, each measuring 14”x18” (356x457 mm). I thought about the same thing, i.e. the possibility of a customer wanting to frame the painting later on.

I took the paintings to a framer and asked him to cut a mat mount and a backing board (acid-free). He did a great job with a bevelled cut mat mount. Mat mount and backing board measuring 17.95”x24.01” (456cx610 mm).

This is one of the ways that would allow for making a frame with flexibility in the size. If need be, the mat mount and board can be cut to suit many frames.

Have a look at my Oil Paintings page under Gallery on my website to give you an idea of the completed result. A link to my website is included in my signature below.

I hope that would be helpful.
