Cutting a Mat for Painting of Allan

January 30, 2017

I’m getting a couple more pieces ready to enter into another show, and one of them I needed to place behind a mat. This is the gouache painting I finished a few months back, “Allan at the Boat Dock.”

I originally was thinking of a lighter shade for the mat, but this was the best color the store had that I liked, and I think it looks okay. I used a Logan Mat Cutting Kit model 525 to cut it, and it’s not the best model they sell, but works fine once you get the hang of it. This painting is 20 x 16″, and that’s about as large an opening it will cut.

I still need to attach it and the painting to a backing sheet of mat board. I’ve got a frame picked out that’s dark brown, or I may go with black. I’ll wait until I hear if it gets accepted before I decide.
