Great work, the color and texture are terrific. Both matts would work but in general I would go with blue.

Also prefer the blue. Red is too dominant IMO. Nice one!

I'd go with off-white. Unless you're going to hang it in your home.

Between the two I'de go with blue.
but I think Dana is right - an off white with a hint of blue cast to it.....

Just a hint here...if you ever plan to enter this into a competition, it will never pass muster with a colored mat. There's a recent article in Artist's Magazine on just this subject.

Again, if it's just for your home, any color would do.
