Abstract 7" x 7" fastened to an inner off-white 8" x 8" mat and then fastened to a slightly darker off-white mat and then that combination of mats were placed into another 8 ply off-white mat with a 9" x 9" opening. Foam core was sandwiched in between that top mat and the very bottom darker mat, giving the appearance of the painting floating .... had to keep the painting lower then that top mat to prevent it from riding against the glass once it's framed.... This is just an experiment with another mat configuration..
The 2nd photo is one in which I've shown the mat configuration ... That 2nd photo also presents a better more truer image of the color of the painting.
