Last season I was very fortunate to get to work on a really special girl that belongs to one of my portrait artist pals. Linda O'Neill of Abby Creek Studios lost her sweet Abby last March and she asked me to create a special portrait that she ordered as a gift for her husband James. I love working for other artists on their pets and Abby was a terrific subject with that happy smile.
This was not the first time we connected on a portrait project though. Back in March of 05 I lost my boy Atticus and I contacted Linda that year to create a portrait for my husband. You can see the lovely portrait she created for us by visiting her site and clicking here.
She really captured our boy's sweetness. That year I found that when you are so raw with loss it can be really therapeutic to let another artist work for you.
Thanks to Linda for trusting me to do a good job, it means a lot to me.
