I am happy to say that my sweet “oldie goldie” Fletch made it to New York and is now in his forever home. This pet portrait was a gift for a friend’s daughter and son-in-law and they where thrilled to get this pet painting since Fletch is no longer with them.
Saying goodbye isn’t easy!
It touches me to be able to give my clients a memory not just a pet portrait. People ask me more often than not, “How do you let go of something you put your heart and soul into…to never see it again?” That is a great question. The truth is that I do miss my pet portraits but what I am really happy about is that I have given something to someone that is priceless.
My clients have been so grateful and thankful that I am fortunate and it makes it easier to see them go. It makes my heart fill with joy…therefore, I am more than okay with sharing my talent and giving them something they will treasure for a long time. Our pets become our family and, unfortunately, do not live as long as we do…so we go into adopting a pet knowing they are only with us for a short time. It was a pleasure to see these parents of this beloved golden so happy. My heart sings!!
