Framed Henderson Print Reflects Well on Owner, Better on Self

Uhhhhh. I finally put my Derek Henderson print up on the wall today. Inquiring minds will be pleased to know it is hung to the gallery standard, in that the center of the print is at eye-level. I’ll tell you what’s not museum-quality, though. The glass. No sooner did I heave the giant thing (much larger in real-life than it looks in the pic, let me assure you) onto the wall and step back to admire my hanging skillz… than… I saw lots of horrible reflections on the glass. What a shame. The strength of the pic is the subtlety of the coloring, which is kind of lost due to the shiny shiny glass (much worse in real-life than in the pic). Argh! I’m going to call the framer and see how much anti-glare glass would cost. I’m mad at myself because I FORGOT to even ask about the anti-glare stuff. I brought in a picture of the room where the pic was going up (nerdy, but I wanted to do things right), where the windows were clearly visible, and the woman who helped me said, “You’ll be interested in UV-protected glass, if the pic is next to a window.” Okay, great! I got that! But what about anti-glare glass?? Geez. My guitar gently weeps.
