it's a wrap

Yes, I do canvas stretching!  

This is a 6 x 8' canvas print from Ikea.  Huge.  Vibrant.  Awesome!  The client just wanted it stretched, no frame.  Usually canvases are stretched around stretcher bars and tacked with staples around the sides, then framed.  But since this was going to be displayed sans frame, I suggested a gallery wrap which means that the image extends around the sides of the stretcher bars and is stapled in the back.  It's a legitimate and modern way to display canvas.
