I thought you might like to see my new “Zen Visions” Set (4 prints) that is now in my Etsy store, artBJC. 
Each image is also available individually, as you will see there.

I want to offer a few thoughts about framing such a set.

I personally prefer the asymmetric arrangement custom matting provides (like they are presented in the image above),
however there are many frames available to accommodate groupings of four.  IKEA is very popular for framing art and photography. Another option is to frame each individually,
and arrange them on your wall any way you find appealing.

Also mounting them on foamcore attached to a square matboard, then mounting all in a square sectional frame, such as offered by Nielsen Bainbridge is yet another option.
They are readily available online and in framing shops,
and can be adapted to any dimension.

I hope you find some of these suggestions helpful.

It is so natural to see things in series, relationships or themes when capturing images. This was certainly true with these first two visions of my "Shadows Series" that formed a life of their own.... instantly creating a calm feeling flowing within me.

I hope you feel the same peaceful aura that caught my eye.

We all owe ourselves the value of cherishing the moment....for that is really all we have.  If we miss that, we miss it all!  We tend to be caught up in the issues of yesterday and our concerns for tomorrow....
and forget living the precious present...
the only time we really have. 

That is why one of my mottos is:

"Keep the Zen!"

These images somehow created their own elegance of design in addition to emitting a therapeutic quality.

To add a little Zen to the environment of your d├ęcor, they are available in 5" x 7" and 8" x 10" in my Etsy store:
