We have thoroughly enjoyed working with photographer Carol Whitfield, who runs the pet portraiture business, Clooney Dog & Friends. http://www.clooneydog.com/
We collaborated on a collection of contemporary hardwood frame samples she can offer her clients after a photoshoot of their beloved pets, either on Hahnemühle fine art paper and matted under UV-protective glass, or printed on canvas and set within a float frame. Her ability to capture the personality of her subjects is uncanny and utterly charming.
Carol’s passion for animals has also taken her around the United States and to Europe where she has applied her artistic eye to capture stunning images of horses.
We were excited to frame two prints of this image from Portugal. The first frame is oiled walnut, with the flow of grain in the top and bottom intentionally matching the action in the photo. The dark, beautiful horse runs against the minimalist backdrop of a weathered white wall: motion and stillness. At first glance, the print resembles a painting, with softened edges and passages of blurred detail.
The second print hangs in a collector’s home in a darkened cherry frame and a water-gilded 12K-white gold liner over black clay.
