A little while ago I painted a portrait of a cute little pup named Matilda who passed away recently. Caroline, Matilda’s owner, loved the portrait so much, she commissioned me to paint her sister’s dog’s portrait, too, Bear, who also passed, sadly. This is beautiful Bear.
After Caroline gave her sister Bear’s portrait, she told me: ‘She loooooooved it. I mean, really really loved it! Everyone said that you really captured his essence. My father explained, “that is exactly the look Bear would give me! It’s just like him!”. My sister cried. And smiled. Hugs. Thanks again for sharing your talents to produce such a meaningful remembrance! This is the best gift ever!’
I was incredibly touched to read those words! Thank you, Caroline, and to your whole family for those kind words! I am very happy I was able to make a difference by bringing some comfort to your family. Thank you for trusting me with your special memory.
Working on Bear's portrait in Ella Studio, a few minutes at a time.
All the short Ella Studio sessions add up ... Loved painting sweet Bear!
