Framed

I am really pleased with the frame that I had made for the memorial portrait of the good dog Shiver.  It feels very traditional and fitting, it goes well with the fact that he was a much loved hound and his picture is painted on 10,000 year old mammoth ivory.  Behind the painting is a small area of gold leaf which gives a certain warm glow to the painting as the light reflects through the tiny brushstrokes.  All in all it makes a very special thing which I know will be treasured for many years.
