Acrylic on Canvas
(not for sale)
With all the excitement of the past few months behind me, I am now at a place that I want to "PAWS" and reflect on the people in my life!
Family and friends are very special to me and I never seem to express that enough.
Being able to visit over the holidays was fun but I never am able to see everyone I want to.
I hope all of you, friends old and new, have had a blessed holiday and are off to a great new year!
I painted this portrait of a special girl, a "child" of a friend of mine. This girl is quite an interesting character! She is very selective in who she admits into her parent's home and I was fortunate to be one of the few! I have fond memories of interesting conversations over a good cup of coffee. (you know, the condition of the local squirrels and the frequency of birds flying overhead...)
Jackie considered herself a "10" and I may have to agree with her!
She is a diva indeed.
I am glad to add her to my long list of furry friends!
If you have ever considered commissioning a pet portrait of you own, just email me and we can discuss how it works. It is fun and rewarding to see a loved one come to life on a canvas, to keep alive all those great memories!
Thank you so much for taking a moment out of your day to visit my blog and look at my paintings.
Here is to a wonderful 2011 and don't forget, dog hugs and kisses are the best!
