Haley’s Pet Portrait
BY ERICA ERIKSDOTTER
Haley was dumped at a gas station and rescued by a man who let her stay outside. But Haley didn’t like that so she kept escaping to the neighbor (my client) who after many attempts, finally took her in. This joyful jack russell, miniature pinscher and chihuahua mix lived a happy and adventurous 16 year old life and now she’s forever honored in this special way.
We chose a deep blue for the background color to pay homage to the vest Haley often wore, another meaningful layer to an already beautiful keepsake.
“She’s so beautiful!!! It’s perfect! You captured her personality, her sweetness and her joyful spirit. I can’t find enough words to tell you how much I love Haley’s portrait. I will always remember the wonderful experience of being part of your work process. It is a privilege to know you. You have such an awesome talent and even more beautiful heart. I’ll be following you on instagram to see your incredible work and who you bring to life on canvas next. Thank you does not seem adequate to express my appreciation for your work and kindness.”
