Framing Tree Bark?

Recently, artist Vickie Mitchell stopped by with her latest painting for us to frame. This original piece depicts a young girl with her horse. And . . . it is painted on a piece of tree bark.

We placed it in a shadow box frame, without glass, on a black background. You can see all the variations, texture and movement in the bark.

This is a beautiful piece, and we enjoyed having it in the gallery, if only for a short time.
