Andrea Schwartz Gallery likes to use D-rings for hanging large, finished pieces. While working on paintings in the studio, though, I like to hang the canvases on a pair of sturdy L-hooks screwed into the wall.

I attach a 1"x1"x3' (or so) piece of pine wood to the underside of frame's top edge, and the L-hooks hook right onto that, ensuring that the painting doesn't go anywhere while I'm working.
