A Painting to Give Away

Here is the painting that I’ve been working on to give away.  It is going to a woman I know who is very generous.  This past year her dog Jade, who she loved very much, died.  I know it’s been difficult for her, and I decided to paint a portrait of Jade to send to her this year.      She doesn’t know I’m doing this, and I don’t think she reads my blog but you never know…it is a public blog, after all.  My plan is to mail it to her next week.

I am almost finished, but I’ll share the first couple of images with you.  You can’t tell from the pictures, but the painting is 18″x24.”

 I’ll be back with an update by the end of the week!
