Talk to the Animals

This one was hard to photograph, but the colors are pretty true in the scan above. It was a commission to be given as a gift to a recent veterinary school graduate, to hang in her new office.

The gold is tooled with the traditional pattern that I think of as curled fern fronds.

I wanted the animals to be subtle, so I "hid" them in the border. Best of luck to the newly-minted veterinarian!
