A matter of perspective

When a friend retired and our gift wasn’t quite ready, I rummaged through my prints, found one I liked, quickly wrote a message on the front, popped the print into a small box, and wrapped the box. Our friend opened the box and was pleased with the temporary gift.

A while later, when I saw the print in a photo frame from Marshall’s, it was as though I was seeing the print for the first time. I experienced an unexpected appreciation for the work through my friend’s simply rotating the print and putting it in a frame. There’s nothing quite so helpful as framing any artwork, particularly if its matted or the finished size suits affordable stock frame sizes. Beauty, and perception, is in the eye of the beholder—and in the manner of presentation!
