"Chief" is pet kid to Hadley Cropp. He is a beautiful, but serious Chesapeake Bay Retriever. What I love about working in the fauvist fashion is the color! I love color, and I think even after I finish my 101 Pet Portrait project I will work in the fauvist fashion in some way! It gives these pet portraits just another bit of character while hopefully still resembling them! I love the blues in Chief that describe a bit different value in his coloring! This was lots of fun! One of my favorite colors is this bright green that is the background...it reminds me of granny smith apples. Remember color is translated a little differently on different computer screens. I know this is a problem, that I don't have an answer to except to try to describe color. I try to do that whenever I think exact color may be an issue. Chief comes ready to frame, or he can sit on a small easel and shine in all his glory!
Chief looks handsome in all the frames...even just sitting on a small easel. Like always, you can find these particular frames for your pet portraits at pictureframes.com in the floater frames. Watch on the top left as they often have sales. I am not fond of their prices for shipping, so if you decide to purchase please take a moment and ask them to review this. I have ordered two small frames and they have come in a giant box...I believe they are packed VERY WELL, but they could do better on this issue! :) Just my humble opinion!
yep, Idrink diet coke...and this is my messy pain stained work table...:)

Just a note about floater frames...see how the painting sits in the frame with all sides showing? THAT is what a floater frame does...just for those who didn't know.
