Just have to share this one, a commission, which was a very emotional project, but such a blessing to paint. It's a memorial piece I just completed for a woman who tragically lost eight cats and two doves in a house fire. She sent photos, along with a bit of information about each of these angels, so I was able to paint brothers together, Mommy cat cradling baby in her arms, and so on.
This is actually the second of three memorial commissions on the schedule recently, with one more (already in progress) to follow. They usually bring a tear or two as I work on them, but it's such a blessing to think the finished piece may bring some comfort.
