Diesel Memorial

My amazing vet lost Diesel.  He is so famous.  His portrait won a prize and then it graced the cover of the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association last year and was featured in a group portrait of her gang of well loved pups.  I made two small diamond dogs for her to keep near at home and at the office.

Lucy, a gift

I was so happy to do a gift portrait.  This little piece was of a great dog who was a real survivor.  The owner wanted to treat her husband, who has everything, with a painting of their most important family member.  After much illness this little beauty was a dear creature and lovely model

Ocho - A Memorial

Return clients are always great... unless they are in tears and mourning the loss of another pet.  This was delivered in tears... as we usually do. 
As hard as it is, I really appreciate it when people contact me while in their early grief.  I KNOW this  helps.  I also get great hugs when I deliver it.

Hospice of the Valley Donation

I painted Lin Sue Cooney, a local television celebrity for a portrait show in 2015.  The piece featured her beautiful Standard Poodle, Max.  
This lead me to her and her new job as spokeswoman for Arizona's Hospice of the Valley and my portrait donation of the Labra-doodle pup that was auctioned at their big event!  SUCH A CUTIE!!!
