Little “Sophie” – Oil. A Corgi who was such a sweet and adorable little girl. She blue ribboned at the Corgi shows and the owner was sooo proud of her. Sadly the day came when Marge told me she had to put Sophie down. It is one part of my job I hate to hear. Most of my work with animal portraits is painting a subject that is at the end of their life or close to it. I can understand how my client feels as I’ve had pets as long as I’ve lived. I can associate of their passing.
