Then I decided it needed something more.
So I added a top mat. A bright white that matched the color of the paper (I left a small margin to showcase the artists signature and edition number).
This particular print is by Paco Pomet and served as the principle artwork for Phish's album Fuego, released in 2014.
After living with both versions on the shop wall I ended up right back where I started, with the single mat version. This particular mat has a slight distressed look which I like. BUT, I liked the version with the extra mat as well.
Art is subjective.
There is no right or wrong.
Which do you prefer?
