"TUCKER" 39/100 OF 100 PET PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Tucker" is my friend Becky Silver's grand dog.  IE...he is pet dog to her son.  I've not met Tucker, but her spoke to me immediately.  His coloring just begged for strong oranges and yellows with blue darker areas. Tucker is painted in oil on a 6"x6" slightly textured panel.  He comes ready to frame in your favorite frame, or can sit on an easel as he is!  

IF you are interested in information about framing, I have found some fun frames that are called Floater Frames at pictureframes.com. The three below are examples of a floater frame.  Floater frames show all the edges of a painting.  These are all wood frames.  I have developed an easy way to frame them.  For a bit of added thickness, I get a piece of foam core. I cut it the size of the painting.  Glued it on to the bottom "shelf" of the floater frame (the lowest section; it will be obvious when you get the frame).  I put permanent sticky tabs on the foam core and pressed on the painting and it is in!
