Most of my acrylic paintings are painted on 1.5" deep gallery wrap canvas. I thought I would post this just to inform anyone who may not know what that is. It is becoming a very popular way to display art because it eliminates the need to purchase custom framing. I love nice picture frames as much as anyone, but I think whether to frame or not should be up to the collector. However, I do think that the gallery wrap canvas does not always work for all types of paintings. Some paintings do look much better in a traditional frame.
The nice thing about this is even though the painting can be displayed without a frame, it can also be custom framed like any other painting, if the collector prefers.
