Beloved Esther

This is Esther, whom we are adopting from some family members. She is going to be greatly missed by them because she truly is the most awesome dog in the world.

I wanted to give them something special for choosing us to be Esther's new family so I spent today painting this for them. Thanks R and B, we'll take good care of her!

Gorgeous, this is great! :)

You are so thoughtful - what an amazing gift and keepsake for a family that will miss this special dog. I know that she will be extradorinarily happy with your kids! The painting is wonderful - shows her character, and the fur is gorgeous. You are in for a very full life throughout the adjustment period! All the best in this new adventure. :-)

Thanks dw - so nice to see you around. :)

Thanks Joanne - she's here now and the painting is at its new home. I'm pretty happy with the trade (although this was probably one of my most favorite dog paintings to date)

Michelle--this is an incredible painting!!!

Wow. I'm blown away by the colors, shapes, the lines (you have such a way with lines).

Please. Please tell me you will be painting more of these types of paintings. I may have to move to a place with more walls. :)
