Just a general statement that I would love to see the space the framed artwork occupies in the room

I’m still filling in gaps places. I have something else that will go above the TV so I don’t have a picture of most of the wall. I’ve also been switching places of things as other pieces get framed. Luckily we have 9 foot ceilings.

Well done, both pieces look amazing!   

Question:  when framing painted / colored art, how do you decide whether to use a mat, glass, both or neither?  I haven't been consistent over the years but lately I tend to use mat+glass for all but the largest pieces, for which I use neither.  Curious how others approach this hm

I’ve been getting a lot of stuff framed since I’ve moved. Got this one back yesterday and it’s fairly large. The fiancé loves Dark Phoenix so it’s hanging over the TV in the living room.

It depends what type of paint was used, material painted on, and if there is a varnish. The Dark Phoenix is oil on masonite so I didn't use any glass. I do have some pieces under glass with no mat that have spacers along the edge to keep the glass from touching, those pieces were painted right up to the edge of the board. Usually painted stuff with white borders where the whole board wasn't used get a mat from me. That X-Men piece is actually a frame I reused which is why the mat isn't even dimensions all the way around as it was originally for a different piece I had but sold. I actually need to either get it reframed because I noticed when I moved to our new place the piece was sliding around inside the frame behind the mat. It actually slightly off but I was able to mostly tap it back into place for now.

I’ve had this piece for almost a decade. I never got around to framing it as it was a little larger. I love the Spider-Man villains and there just aren’t many published paintings of Molten Man. Really love the frame on this one!

This is another wall of the den so far. I had some ideas of which paintings I wanted where but sometimes certain pieces plug in well. Also if I wind up with a piece my fiancé likes it can go in the bedroom and I don’t have to use den wall space. She gives me a lot of latitude on what can go in the bedroom.

The ceilings are 9 feet tall so that gives you an idea on how large some pieces are.

My 'comic' room is always in a bit of a mess (shrug). I'm always doing something in there. These are two areas of the room where I have the room to put something on the wall. Just too many bookcases that eat up wall space, but it's the only room in the house that has no exposure to natural light. Oh...probably obvious that I am a fan of Jack Kirby.

Here’s my modest collection of Vega/Baroness commissions I have framed on my wall.  Hoping to add more in the upcoming months (on the adjacent wall) and a framed comic page or two...
