I seldom frame my work. I paint mostly on canvas and either let the composition spill onto the sides or finish the edges off in a color that complements the painting.

I love the decorative hangers on top of the frame rather than the standard wire on the back.
Now I need to order some Masonite 5x7's and cut them down just a bit so that they will fit into the frames properly.
