Cat by Peter Bowles

Here’s an original painting of a cat—8.5″ x 5.5″ gouache (probably? forgot to ask) on paper—by UK artist (and former Truth or Consequences resident) Peter Bowles.

A recap of what happened:

  • artwork is affixed to an acid-free foam core mount with (archival) Yes Paste
  • 8-ply mat added around the border, outside the work, to show off those nicely painted edges
  • mat is elevated slightly, giving more depth to the whole show
  • elevation of mat made possible by 1.25″ deep moulding, recycled from an old frame
  • conservation clear glass to prevent color fade down the road
