Sweet Jetta

 Jetta is one of several projects that I will be printing later this afternoon.  I loved working on Jetta, this part lab/ part greyhound looked like one happy girl in her original photograph.  She lived a good long life and left her humans for the rainbow bridge just this last month at the age of 12. I am very honored to have been able to create a special portrait of this sweet girl. I am also thrilled that her people chose the last fun and quirky off center image shown above for their 12 x12 print. That choice tells me that she and her people have lived life playfully and boldly. My heart goes out to them at this tough time.
