My customers often surprise me with their creativity with how they choose to display and frame the pet portraits.
This pair of 9x12" pooch paintings is a great example.
I knew when I began the paintings that the buyer planned to frame them, and I had in mind a modern, black, narrow profile frame molding, since these are a bit abstract and modern, and large in size.
But the ever-clever customer had a different idea and i think it turned out amazingly.
The 5" wide distressed, ornate southern cream color offsets the blues and greens and brings a connection to the highlights of the dogs that I would not have expected.
And to see them hung together vertically in this way is so dramatic, that even in the corner of the room, they catch your eye.
Pleasant surprises are always welcome, and I'm glad to learn a little myself.
