TITLE: "A Life Well Lived". Important message from the artist. LIGHTING: I photograph all my snazzy works of art using professional, true day light bulbs.CRI measures how close a bulb comes to producing true noon day sunlight. True noon day sunlight is rated at CRI of a perfect 100. All paintings change drastically according to the quality and amount of light that illuminates them. Proper lighting is vital to enjoying your art at its highest potential. All paintings reflect light rather that emitting light. What this means is you need sufficient light (and preferably a high CRI) to really make them glow. They become subdued, dull, and dark. Lighting is so vital that the very first thing that museums and art galleries do when building new facilities is design the lighting systems. Everything else is subordinate to the lighting design. Fortunately, it's now easy to properly light your paintings at home. There are many great options to properly light your new Max Cole Original. Some attach to the frame while others are "accent up lights". All are easy to install and use.
You can get hard wired models or battery powered models, whichever is right for you. No matter what you use to light your painting, try to get bulbs that have the highest CRI possible. A CRI of 90 or above is best.
These types of bulbs are called Full Spectrum bulbs. A CRI of 93 or over is ideal and will perfectly match the light I use in my studio. You will see your painting exactly as I intended it to be seen and it will absolutely GLOW! Once you see one of my paintings properly lit, you will be hooked!If you cant obtain ideal lighting, concentrate on achieving a high QUANTITY of light even if the CRI is not perfect. Some will place their painting above a regular table lamp. High CRI bulbs for your table lamps are widely available on the internet.
To get a glimpse of the power of proper light on paintings, take one of my paintings outside and look at it in the sun. You won't believe the difference. FRAMING: My paintings are designed to be displayed framed. Framing your new painting will change it dramatically for the good while also protecting it from damage.
Try to pick out a frame that is either washed gold or black with a gold liner. The designs I use tend to be simple but high quality frames with some low key carvings. I have found these types of frames to really enhance my work. When properly lit and framed, you won't believe how your new painting will transform into something special. I'm always here to assist you with framing.
Ask me what frames I stock and I will frame your new painting so it arrives ready to hang. This is only temporary until things return to normal. Thank you for your understanding.
