Start of One More Pet Portrait

Here’s the very beginning of Lola, a beautiful pup.  Sadly, this is a memorial painting, since her person lost her recently.  It’s difficult for someone who has not had that special relationship with a dog to understand how much it hurts to lose your best friend.  I just read an article about how the grief of losing a pet can be worse than losing a person, and partly because there is no ritual of grief around it like we have with people.  Maybe in some way my portraits are part of a ritual of grief.  I certainly hope they help in the grieving process.  Have a good weekend.
