24" x 18" Acrylic on Canvas
A thoughtful young man in the Greensboro, N. C. area commissioned this painting as a Christmas gift for his wife. Last fall he and I looked at a number of photos (via email) and decided this one best represented the loving devoted personality of their adored pet recently lost at an advanced age. She had always been a part of their married life and it was difficult letting her go.
It’s a pleasure to say this client was a joy to work with giving me helpful email feedback every step of the way! Bailey is snoozing in a sunbeam waiting for her two little boys to wake up and play. Shortly after Christmas a phone call from the recipient assured me how pleased she is and that the portrait will be a prized keepsake keeping Bailey's memory alive. That call meant so much! Better than ribbons!!
