Happy Birthday Phoebe - A PORTRAIT OF GUS!


YESTERDAY MY SWEET ONLY DAUGHTER CELEBRATED HER 17TH BIRTHDAY
BABY PHOEBE WITH THE CHOCOLATE EYES BABY PHOEBE WITH THE CHOCOLATE EYES

I won't get all mushy on you...lets save that for ALL of next year when I prepare for her to leave home for College...but suffice to say...she has grown up much too fast...

PHOEBE HAS A CAT NAMED GUS.

Gus came into our lives, Phoebe's life after our family had suffered a great loss. He has brought such comfort and joy into Phoebe's  life and I believe he has helped her heart to heal. Gus spends 99% of his time in her room, coming out as if on a recognizance mission when he needs to tend to his bathroom needs of grab a bit of chow. He is a FRAIDY cat for sure...but he melts in Phoebe's arms and adores her unconditionally.

I DECIDED THAT  the perfect birthday gift for me to give my sweet sweet girl was
to paint a portrait of GUS  !!!

They have been amazing, as always...TRULY they are two of the most down to earth people I have ever met!....and basically the just asked for ....anything you have.... we will LOVE!!!...the only requested piece was this 36" x 36" portrait of their Chihuahua "BURGER"...to place over the fireplace as a nod to their design..and dog...as he is a major player in their life and blog....
I am so grateful for this opportunity to have my ART seen on such a large scale by such a wonderful following ...and cannot wait to paint more portraits for anyone that would like your own BURGER!

IN MEMORY OF SWEET MOSES


I am often painting more than one painting at a time...and I have all of these checks and double checks to make sure that I don't mistakenly put the wrong name on a painting...or GOD FORBID...ship a painting to the wrong recipient. I have never done either...that is until this week...when I wrote "MILO" instead of "MOSES"....I think because all the while I was painting this adorable "pug nosed pup!" .... I kept hearing the theme song from
"MILO AND OTIS"
.... even though it is OTIS that is the pug!


....My most recent Custom Pet Portrait was of 
"MOSES"
(I am so sorry..I got your name wrong Moses when I mistakenly wrote Milo! )




Moses was a MUCH beloved dog who sadly passed away in January....  



"He was our furry child....All Moses ever wanted was to be a companion.  He was content to sit with us all the time, especially in his later years.  In his early years he loved to play and go for walks.  He LOVED to eat and he would bark constantly when I cooked scrambled eggs because he knew he would get a little portion in his own bowl.  He was a very special family member to us."

....look at that face...what a heart stealer!

"MOSES"

HERES TO MOSES...one of the BEST!
 You are very much LOVED...
 and very much MISSED.

XO
