FROM TOP: "Kanga" and "Chloe", each 4" square, both commissioned portraits of mixed breed dogs, in a private collection (thank you!). Still, inquiries may always come to me.
Kanga is currently going through a health crisis, and my thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.
It seems as of late many of my muses have taken ill or journeyed across the bridge. These things always seem to come to my attention in groups, which maybe makes it easier to bear, knowing there's great companionship on both sides. And there is always comfort in numbers, small groups of numbers, that is. But nevertheless, it is near impossible to see beyond the immediate grief such a loss brings upon us.
I am so hoping Kanga will bounce back and enjoy many years of quality with her extended family. Bella's doing well, and last I heard Emma's news was positive too. Gotta keep the good vibes moving about.
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
