Happy Holly

Happy Holly___11x14 oil on linen__a commission for Act I Gallery
A few days ago I posted a happy dog sketch. It was the last drawing I did for my I sketched upside down so she could watch it happen while laying in bed....Mom passed away on Sept 12....
Well that happy dog sketch was from a photo of this dog, Holly.
Holly's family sent me some pics to paint from...I usually play around with several views, combining them for an original view. I showed them "mom's sketch" and asked if I could keep it (for sentimental reasons), and then painted this as their final commission. I thought of my mom, all the while I worked on Holly...remembering how much my mom loved me to paint animals, and loved to watch me work...I will miss that!

I believe your mom is still watching you! What a 'room' with a view!

My mom was my biggest fan and loved to watch me paint. I lost her 4 1/2 years ago, and I still miss her terribly. So, I completely understand how you feel. Keep all your memories. May God bless you. Oh, and I love your paintings!

Oh V, :( :( :(

I lost my own dear mama on Sunday, September 15th. She was 86 and had had successful surgery but complications ensued.
We were so so lucky to have them for so long but I miss her and think about her every day. My siblings and I are in the process of cleaning out her old New England Farmhouse in which she lived for 44 years. Painful.
Hugs to you.
