To frame or not to frame??
Today I recieved my first original piece of art, it is a painting done by my very good friend and I absolutely love it it is called Kaleidoscope.My question for you all is do you think I should frame it or just wire the back I have never owned a painting before and I am not sure how to display it best?

If you want it to last you should definitely frame it. Canvas has a nasty habit of curling with time and framing prevents that from happening.

I agree..have it framed but in this case something really simple that will focus the eyes on the picture itself. Framing shops will generally lay your picture down or put it on an easel and show you different frame sections so you can choose. Nice pic!
