Here's mine: Conga Girls at Rest



Artist signed prints are great! I've purchased several from fantastic artists in the scene - Von Franco, Doug Horne, Derek, Bosko.... and I'm proud to own them.

The Monitors and sushiman,

I was just thinking the same thing (re: black matting).
I had doubts about black matting looking "too heavy,"
but "Raft of the Medusa" is such a deeply colored print,
that all the black matting is brightening it up.

I think I will use black matting in a similar fashion
when I get mine "Raft of Medusa" framed.

Thanks for the image!

RevBambooBen,
Gotta tell ya, that photo of you with Shag is great,
and you look quite handsome in it.

Hey Sushiman,

Dude...sweet. I didn't think black on black would look good, but it does. It just nice to see different executions of framing. Please post again once you hang it and occupies your living space.

Hey Ben,

LOL...I think Shag owns a little piece of all of us.

I really like that thin strip of black around the outside of the print
followed by the much lighter mat on top.

hmmmm. Gonna have to rethink some of my framing choices, clearly.

Also, gotta say "Conga Girls at Rest" didn't jump out at me as an image
until seeing it "in real life" and in your setting and framing.

Adding another to my "must buy" list. *sigh*

Yeah, I was thinking about the same thing (re: strip of black around the print). Very cool.

..incidentally, grommit...there are a couple threads here already started awhile back in regards to original artists work in the collections of some of the folk here...


not sure what the title of the threads are, or even what to search under but i'm positive they exist though i haven't seen them updated recently....

Relative TC newbies like me would LOVE to see them!

I might tiki-fy my new office in a year or so and the whole "research" phase
is the funnest part.

Guys - thanks for appreciating my print & framing . As I said , I have no plans to mess with Medusa as it looks terrific as is . Only problem is that we live in a refurbished but old ( 30 years which by Japanese standards is quite old ) Japanese countryside house , and the way the rooms are set up location and size wise left us with few good places to hang the serigraph . We ended up hanging it in our humble living room . I'll post a pic soon .

OKay. It may be a bit hard to make out. This is my living Shag Art.

I am in awe of the Shag collections that some of you have. Since prints and paintings are a wee bit out of my price range I click through this thread with envy.

I do have a few mugs and knick knacks but my favorite Shag piece is a book I know everyone has :



But it has been signed and made out to me. (Liz is my real name and everyone has called me "The Liz" forever):



So at least I have a bit of signed art and I can work my way up to purchasing one of his prints sometime this millenium!

That's sweet Liz. He even drew you a little cocktail. That's original art too.

@ TikiDiego, that's a neat one. Gotta love the Shag, framing is quite awesome too. Nice job!

Unfortunately, I have no Shag to share (well, I haven't waxed my chest in a while, but that's another story ;p )!
