Gosh. This photo was sent to me from my friend, Maureen, who commissioned this portrait for a gift. This little dog, Dixie, passed away and Maureen had this portrait done as a gift for Dixie's humans because losing their dog was so devastating. I think that was a very thoughtful gesture, and I hope it is providing them comfort to have this portrait in their home. This really means a lot to me. This has been an unexpected benefit I have received from doing these portraits. I am so pleased that someone really gets comfort or joy from their portrait hanging in their home.
Based in Birmingham, AL, I love creating portraits in charcoal and pastels. Join me on my creative journey, inspired by the people, places, and pets I've met along the way!
