Happy Campers

This was a special birthday surprise project for my client's wife, featuring her beloved pets. It celebrates and commemorates the friendship of pals Gita (the cat) and Coda (the dog, R.I.P.), with the two camping together in heaven. This project was especially unique because it incorporated a beautiful piece of wood belonging to his wife. It was a bit of a gamble using this as a surface for the piece and required a bit of wood filler and treated gesso in spots, but the finished product really leant itself to the woodsy feel of the camper theme!
