Darling Luke was such a wonderful dog to paint. It was the third portrait this client ordered from me and the first dog, her pride and joy. She had rescued him when he was a little wee one and at the time I painted his portrait, he was 16 years. Sadly he passed away shortly after the painting was complete, and the painting, which was ordered to be a tribute to his long and beautiful life, is now very much fulfilling its purpose.
My client shared with me that the painting has definitely helped the healing process, and it still is a great comfort. “Every time I pass by his painting, it brings a smile to me. It’s something I will treasure forever.”
