I found the piece during our day shopping in the Ladies Market and the Jade Market.
For comparison I give you exhibit A- Rocco's smug grumpy face, not often captured on camera because dude knows how to ham it up but it's true, he's got a grumpy side...
Anyway, I got the 18" x 26" canvas paint for just $5 USD! I did some major bargaining, love bargaining in foreign countries, I just repeat the number/price over and over as though I don't know how to say anything else. I swear it's a fantastic strategy :)
Once I got it home, I decided that it'd probably be best to just frame it with a white matte around it and settled on the simple Ribba frame from Ikea for $19.99. Before I could frame it though, I had to fix the unpainted corners on the canvas fabric. Thankfully I was able to mix some paint and achieved the right color to match the ground of the painting.
After the corners dried I was able to place the painting in the frame and mounted it on one of our living room walls.
the LONG doggie care list that Alex put together for our dogs if you haven't already- it is almost 3 pages long and pretty humorous!
