Sorry that I haven't been around very much lately, I've missed all of the wonderful people and things on here, I hope you've all been well.
This week-end I had a chance to do a bit of shopping and picked up a couple of things that I'm really excited about.
This Dog portrait is especially beautiful to me. Yes, I now have cats, and am crazy about them, but I love all creatures great and small,....and this little dog absolutely stole my heart.
I believe that it's embroidered silk, and that it was probably hand done,( ? ). It's 11+3/4" X 14+3/4", and has all the poise and shimmer of a real dog,....
( he seems to quiver on the silk background ).
The framing is really lovely, all archival with UV filtering glass,....so whoever had it loved and valued it very much.
The price was a little high for me, but when I asked if it was a 'fixed' price they dropped it by a significant chunk, even though it was new for the shop.
I haven't had any luck finding information about this type of work on the internet,...if anyone could help I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks very much,
