Many times people will ask me to paint their dogs, either while still alive or after they have passed. I especially feel connected with their beloved pet as I paint them after they have gone. Some are paintings done as gifts, some are paid commissions, and others I ask simply for a donation to their local animal shelter.

I met Louise while visiting my daughter in Beacon, and was captivated. I asked her “mom” Liz for a photo and sent this to her as a gift.

Beau was a commission from a friend to give to her friend.  After it was delivered, I got a call from the recipient. Could I redo the art? It seems that Beau saw it lying on a suitcase as it was about to be shown to her daughter. Here is what he did:

And here is what I redid. I will never forget Beau, just doing what a dog will do.
