Painting with Inks

Well, it's a rainy day here in Sonoma County..we haven't had enough of these lately, so I'm not going to complain. It actually helped to warm things up, so I'm not typing with gloves on.. yay.

The piece above was a bit of an experiment..which I guess all of my projects really are. Just never know what you're going to get..anyhow, this one is on 140 lb cold press watercolor paper. I painted the whole background with Palette Hybrid ink in New Canvas, fancy for white..and then painted and sponged over the top with other Palette ink colors..including Metallic gold. I add a piece from an old airline ad in the center and then painted around that a little more. The colors are really very rich in person..the gold really pops! I'm trying to decide now how to finish it..adhere it to the front of a canvas? do I frame it?..any suggestions?

Very nice piece of work. It would look good matted with an off white 3" mat and framed under glass.
