Day 25- Griffy boy… this is my friend Rae’s dog. I worked with Rae’s daughter for many years, and Rae was one of the first to commission me. She has since then purchased a few of my paintings and allows me to paint her beautiful photos. So when I saw her post some beautiful photos of her beloved dog that had just passed, I knew I had to paint him. So here he is, and hopefully it will make her think of happy times with her faithful friend. Losing a pet is so difficult, as we spend more time with them than we do some of our relatives. We see their water bowl, their toys, and their favorite spot to sleep. Most of all we miss their love and companionship. It is wonderful to have a pet, but it is a terribly sad time when they leave us. I am hoping this brings her some comfort. Thanks Rae for all your support, and I hope you think it is a good likeness.
