This is a portrait of Rosie, a beloved pet that belonged to a good friend of a good friend. Sadly, Rosie has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. But I was told by her owner that Rosie was incredibly sweet, loving, and sensitive. She was super smart, loved to play, and go on long walks. Her owner says that just putting on her sneakers would cause this sweetheart to jump in circles and bark like crazy. She also told me that Rosie's pure joy of life was a great example to love completely and live with joy. We should all live like that! I love this dog and didn't even know her personally. With all humbleness, it is better in person. Photos just can't capture a painting as well as seeing it in person. Done on a 12 x 12 inch wooden canvas with acrylic paints.
