Artist's description:

"The Happy Giraffe" is on a 8" x 8"Ampersand 1/8" Aquabord panel. The background is in rich composition ( imitation) gold leaf and the giraffe is in watercolor with some textured highlights in gold leaf. The entire piece is varnished and has a layer of UV protection. It is ready to be inserted into a standard frame without glass. The ampersand panel is a most archival surface and I just love working on it. The composition gold leaf looks like gold and is comparable in brilliance to 14k gold
The gold leaf makes this artwork so special, but it is almost impossible to photograph. When the sun shines on this piece, the gold leaf produces a simply stunning effect. The giraffe herself has such a happy and gentle look that it brings a smile to my face.
I have painted a similar but much larger giraffe which is now sold. But this smaller piece does not require a large wall space to bring light and serenity to a room.
The second image shows how the painting inserted into a standard frame...the one shown here is an inexpensive one to give you an idea how the painting will look framed. The painting is shipped unframed.
