Why Use Basic Black?

Yellow Rose
This past weekend I  framed  several 8 x 10 floral macro images in 11 x 14 frames for the purpose of displaying them in a local business.  The owner of Davis Bakery and Company in Avalon Park graciously offers free wall space to local artists to display and sell their work.

Thanks to the helpful employees in the framing department of two big name craft stores I learned some good tips in a short amount of time.  I have never had an art class, so all of this is new to me.  I greatly appreciated their enthusiastic help and enjoyed the learning process.

Why should you use basic black in framing and matting your vibrant images?  Because it makes the image POP!  Your eye focuses on the image not on the surrounding mat or frame.  Simple?  Yes.  Effective?  Definitely.
