My boy Atticus Immortalized

 Atticus original photograph

So what do pet portrait artists love? Art by other pet portrait artists of course. The artwork above is my boy Atticus by Christine Throckmorton's from her 30/30 painting project that she guest posted about this summer on the blog. She did an amazing job I think, I love the colors. The tail is adorable, and the hair on the nose is perfect. You can read her terrific post about Atticus and synchronicity over on her blog. Atticus was our first Scottish Terrier and we lost him back in 05. I found her blog post on our boy the same day I picked up Big Tommy's ashes. It was a sweet reminder that life is a rich full circle and you have to just keep celebrating love, there is nothing else that matters.
