I ran into a small problem as I worked on this piece. From the sketch I had done previously, I began inking and painting this red trillium.
I always like my work to be as neat and tidy as possible, so I generally tape the borders of my painting to give a nice clean edge. The problem?.....because I had not doubled checked the measured area when I added my name, I found that the mat I had chosen, completely hid my signature.
In the past, I have been pretty lax about signing and dating my work, I am trying to break that habit, I really did like this mat combo, so I simply signed again......no one likely would have known without peeking under the mat.
This was being "gifted" so I did not have a lot of time to come up with a different solution.
