My Two Dog Babies
Anyway, before I let any more time go by...I wanted to share with you two very special gifts I received for Christmas. The first one is from my friend, Shennon (Hi Shens!)...who made this adorable doll of Maisie. It was inspired by the work of Claudine Hellmuth. The little sign Maisie is holding is a quote by Will Rogers and it says, "Go out on a limb; that's where the fruit is". I love it!
The digital painting below...I had commissioned for James this Christmas of our beloved girl dog, Abby who passed away last March. I have always admired the very talented work of Rebecca Collins at Art Paw so I commissioned her to paint Abby. What can I say but we were thrilled with it...it is just an absolutely gorgeous painting. Both James and I consider it to be a very special gift from a most wonderful Artist friend. You can read about it a little more here on Rebecca's blog.
