Re: To frame or not frame before selling
I always frame my paintings. In my experience, most people don't want to deal with framing themselves, and the paintings look much more presentable to the client framed. If someone said they hated the frame, I would offer to switch the frame or sell it unframed and adjust the price accordingly, but I haven't had that happen. If it's a commissioned piece, I offer a choice of simple, but high quality frames, and again, if the client doesn't like what I offer, they can frame it themselves, with the price adjusted accordingly. I also paint on standard size panels, which makes things easier for everyone.
