Q: I need help picking frames and mats for my photographs and paintings. I find myself completely confused and never happy with my choices. Also perplexing is the size of the matting relative to the size of the painting/photo - everything I have frame ends up the same size and with a white matting and black frame. I know there is a real art to framing, do you have any tips to get me started on learning what works?
