Wall art | Calgary/California Family Photographer03.13.13

I have received a lot of the art back for my own house and am slowly getting things on the wall.  I get a lot of questions about whether or not you can put canvas and frames together.  Yes, you can but I do not recommend putting them on the same wall.  Here is what I have done in my dining nook with a combination of both.

The main floor is very open and needed some colour so I picked very vibrant images from last year.  With these being in frames it makes it easy to be able to switch them out each year.  I chose favourites from last year but can make a switch this year with new ones as the kids grow.  Alternatively, canvas needs to be an image that you want for awhile.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have also been meeting with framers in California to ensure that I am offering the best in custom framing to my clients.  I work with an amazing framer in Calgary and have so for 8 years and so there were some very big shoes to fill in California.  I am happy to say I found a great vendor and so far am extremely impressed with his work.  Custom framing allows you to get exactly the configuration and sizing that you want (as you can see I use a combination of rectangular and square images).  I also chose a simple frame and mat to match my furniture (straight lines and minimalist).

I always use anti-glare glass as a standard when framing for clients.  It makes a huge difference in that you can see your art from anywhere in the house as opposed to glare.  The picture below depicts this well.  As an added benefit the glass is also UV protected to keep the prints from fading.

I am back in Calgary this weekend with a full weekend of shoots and continue working on art projects.  I will have more from those soon.  I will also have a note posted on the spring dates/times that I have remaining.
