Lady, a beloved furry companion: gone but not forgotten


Our beloved fur companions  hold a place in our hearts from the time they are adopted.  The loss of a pet is heart wrenching.  I love Erica Jong's quotation about loving and losing a dog.


"Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love...they depart to teach us about loss.  A new dog never replaces an old dog, it merely expands the heart.  If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big." ~ Erica Jong.

Lady lives on in her owner's heart.  


Lady is one of several custom pet portraits in my portfolio.  The painting was a surprise for Lady's owner at the one year anniversary of Lady's death.

    • Thanks, Sally, yes, she is happy. She posted her reaction to my timeline and I published it. I learned though to ask for better photos. Everything is a learning process right now. Another client is picking up her painting this afternoon. Keeps me busy.

I’d love to hear what you have to say...
