I made a start on the background, and i do like it, but i think any colour choice here fights with the shape, but even more with the intent, so, no “background”!

I looked online for mat boards, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s an odd size for conventional mats. I’ll have to now learn to cut my own framing mats, because i really think this would set it off better.
