This last week I received an email from a visitor at Beautiful Artist Websites . We get many emails asking questions about marketing and selling art online and offline, but this particular message got my attention. Let me quote:

Hello. I am from a little town in Wyoming and I am wanting to ask a pretty simple question, Well my wife is a painter/sculptor.

Mat Tips for 2011 - February - Spacing for Mats
Saturday, February 5th 2011   -   By: Myron D. Arndt   -
A common question when matting photos or artwork is whether to leave a space around the image and if so how much.

Whether to leave a space or not is dependent on a couple of things.  First of all is the work signed or numbered in the white margin below the image.  If so - a space at least as wide as the written signature and number should be left all around the image.

Secondly - is the piece very dark and are you using a dark mat.  If so - the white space may create a glaring white border that visually takes away from the image - in which case

Wednesday, January 19th 2011   -   By: Myron D. Arndt   -
Today's post is courtesy of Crescent Cardboard - a manufacturer of some of the finest matboard in the North American Market and maker of Crescent "Rag" Board.   Rag is often mis-understood by those starting to get into the framing market so I felt this information was timely.


For centuries, cotton rag paper, prized for strength, purity and stability, has been the choice of artists, composers, writers and printers. Today it is specified for currency, stock certificates and government documents.

Unsubscribe Me From Your Stupid List Please!
Saturday, December 11th 2010   -   By: Daniel   -

That is the message that greeted me in an email I received earlier this week. It was 6am and I had just made myself a cup of green tea and was starting my day in an exuberant mood as I reviewed emails. The cause of this this terse little response was an email we sent out promoting the smARTist Telesummit . This is an event which we really believe in and in 2011 we are invited Keynote speakers.

I’m normally fairly thick skinned on the odd occasion someone unsubscribes from one of our email lists – but this time I felt different. This was a who

Here are a few of the simple ones to consider:

Clearly Glass

Float your artwork between two pieces of glass.  For example, take an 8 x 10 photo, painting or drawing and mount it with adhesive transfer tape or glue to a piece of 11 x 14 glass – centering the artwork.  Overlay this with a second 11 x 14 glass and pop into a simple wood frame with no backing or
