When you buy a painting from a gallery, they often have framed it according to their taste - which may or may not be the same as yours.
When you buy a painting directly from an artist, you may be getting an attractive, but relatively inexpensive frame. Artists know, and framers will concur, that many collectors like to reframe art to match their decor.
When a painting feels too small for its intended hanging place, the right frame can make it work. For this recently sold painting, the collector worked with a great framer, The Framing Dragon of Mill Valley, and decided to visually enlarge the painting with a linen liner. What an elegant solution!
