I frame with no glass..
When I paint on canvas, I use the gallery wrap mostly [with the wooden cradle at the back] so I don't need to frame those, and I sometimes continue the painting over the edge, or paint it white. If it's a canvas board, then I frame without glass.
[and for gessobords, I treat it the same as canvas.. frame without glass, or use a cradled board which needs no framing.
I sometimes varnish with satin, instead of matt, but I prefer the gloss varnish most of all, it makes the colors more vibrant.
Just one though is something i learned in a graphics class in collage, so i dont know if it relates to paintings is when using red on blue or vis-verse it can have a tendency to cause an illusion of vibrations in the eye.

That is so true.. [everytime I start a painting using only blues & red combination, my eyes go crazy and I feel as if i'm about to have a seizure when I look at it.] -
It doesn't show that way on screen though
