"BO" 54/101 OF 101 PET PORTRAITS IN 101 DAYS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Bo"
6"x6" oil on slightly textured panel
SOLD to Bo's pet dad Mark Bettis
Thanks Mark!
"Bo" was a special challenge as the pic was black/white...WHICH for value is excellent...and it was awesome that Mark sent me other color photos of Bo so I could get inspiration as to how I would paint him.  I told Mark that the colors that looked like brown were actually the result of my brush passing through the two brighter colors...I found it challenging to try to stay with bold strokes with the kind of fur that Bo had...but I ended up liking the end result...Bo is a sweet little Pomeranian pup.

I've been talking about the floater frames from pictureframes.com and I like them...but the other option I've mentioned is these 1/8" thick MDF panels would also do well sitting in an easel.  I had one laying around, and this is how they look...just fine and dandy in any decor!!  Just a few words about the different colors of frames.  Bo happens to look good in any of the choices, in the black it is a strong statement, in the Maple it looks a bit more contemporary, and in the Gold Leaf; my personal fav for this painting...it compliments some of the colors found in Bo's coat.  All fun choices though!!

and, there are the floater frame suggestions...:)

Funny how different all of our tastes our, no? My favorite is the one without a frame and on the display easel. A delightful expression on this little guy!
