I'm so excited today because my batik was installed. I love to collect artwork from people I know. This batik was done by Mark Mulfinger, someone I've studied painting with locally. I decided I wanted to have it backlit because it made the colors so much more vibrant. Another artist/Renaissance man here in town, Renato Moncini, designed this frame so that it backlights the batik and so that the flourescent bulbs are easy to change...he engineered it, designed it, stained it, and installed it. Together, I feel like I have a genuine masterpiece of creativity and design in the main hallway of my house!
Edited to add: It looks in the above pic like it is flush against the wall. Here's a picture of Renato installing it:
