living with art: modern picture box

Wall Display Picture BoxToday's "living with art" winning share comes from Denise Chastain of Modern Wedding Photography.  She says, "This image is a 20x30 print mounted on masonite, displayed in a 26.5x36 recessed shadow box that is built into the wall. The are two small tungsten lights built in above as well. We had our good friend, who is an amazing carpenter, custom make this for us. We have a few mounted prints around so we can rotate them, and they just lean on the wall within the picture box.  This is in the foyer of our studio, and it's the first thing clients see as they enter, next to two O'Brien Schridde framed prints. We did have to reconfigure a structural beam to make it work, but anything in the name of art!" We love this creative display, and that it can easily be updated to be fresh and new!

We already struggle with putting a price on our art, how the heck are we going to make any money if we don't charge profitable prices.
