Finally! We picked up the framed needlework adaptation of my father's Central Park pen-and-ink drawing yesterday. As you may recall, it was the first piece I blog-stitched when I started this blog exactly five months ago yesterday.
I'm very happy with the plain, flat-black frame we selected. The white matte has a black inside lip, which almost produces a double-matte effect. The photo was taken at a slight angle to avoid glare from the camera flash, as the glass is archival but not non-glare. I deliberately chose to use glass since there is so much white in the piece, and I've never aspired to winning the Good Housekeeping seal of approval!
