I’ve said it before, but I love opening my email & hearing about how a portrait gift was received! And even better, seeing it up in a home. I love that I’ve been able to be part of giving someone something truly treasured, unique and an affordable piece of art for their family member. So I was ecstatic to get these pictures from Kim, a past client, who commissioned me to make a Keck-inspired portrait of her daughter’s dog, Forrest! Kim works with a rescue in CA and Forrest was rescued from a high kill shelter. I fell in love with him, the story, the spring in his step! The tail, curled like a pig! & I loved creating this piece!
Yup, his run earned him his name, after Forrest Gump! ; )
That look of surprise & delight on Shelby’s face = priceless!
And since, I’ve gained a great friend, and through her, been able to donate to her shelter a custom art creation! Another thing I love about making custom art: being able to donate to causes I believe in.
