This painting comes ready matted which will fit in a standard 12"x14" frame. We don't ship framed paintings at the moment as it pushes up the cost and frames can be very personal. I like a plain dark wood frame which sets off the white mat and the painting very well.
The painting will be backed by 3/16" foam core board and contained in an acetate sleeve. It is then shipped flat by Fedex in double thickness corrugated cardboard packaging. We've never had a problem with damage even shipping internationally.
