WOW! This is stunning!
That's a lovely portrait no matter what the circumstance. I often find myself shedding a few tears when painting a pet the clients tell has passed away.
What medium did you use, Danette Malerich? That is a beautiful piece!
Beautiful portrait Merrie....This is a remembrance portrait I did of my Teggy. she died when she was 16 years old. the significance is that she is leaving the world she has known ( leaving the picture ) where the sun is setting on her life. stepping into the new world across the rainbow bridge. the sun is rising on the new horizon . Also I mixed some of her ashes into the sand that is on the table so that she will always be part of the picture for me.
