What's not to love?

Personified animals make wonderful subjects and really lend themselves to impressive frames.  Remember this favorite from a few years back?

A client brought in great prints of a handsome pair of mallards. Like my last post on woodland creatures, the illustrations--these by talented artist Ryan Berkley, also came with a few words of context.  In all cases, I affixed these blurbs to the back of the frame for safekeeping.

I immediately thought oval when I laid eyes on these dapper dabbling ducks.  Now I can't imagine them any other way.  

We selected an oversize gold beaded frame for a bit of glitz and character, and I think the exaggerated motif is perfect here!
