Miniatures are lost on a large wall with normal sized paintings. I have found that it is better to feature them either salon style, which is wall to wall, floor to ceiling and close together
or on their own display board. The advantage to a display board is that it can be moved around or taken to events where you will sell the paintings.
The easiest way to create a display board is using a bulletin board that you purchase in big box stores. Try to by one that is in a standard size, like 16x20-18x24, etc. You can take a carpet scrap to glue to the surface of the board or use fabric to wrap around it and staple to the back. I like to use a neutral color like gray because the paintings show up nicely. After the fabric or carpet is secure, I buy a ready made frame to put over it, securing the back with frame clips and putting the d-rings and wiring on the frame. You can then attach lock and loop strips to the carpet or fabric, and then a piece to the back of the frames on the miniatures. Just hang them up.
