Zoe

 
Here is the portrait I painted for Thom to give his cousin. I love honoring the relationship between a person and an animal this way.

I just want to say thank you and to tell you how wonderfully you depicted my Zoe. I was thrilled to say the least when I opened the package while Thom & David waited on the other end of the phone line. Every time I look at it I am amazed at the accuracy. You have captured her very soul in this portrait. I don't need another thing this year for Christmas. I am emailing Thom a photo I took of it hanging in a special spot in my living room and it blends beautifully with the color of the walls. I find it especially gratifying that you paint around the edges of the canvas also. How truly thoughtful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Fran (formerly from AZ, now from OH)

You're very welcome. I enjoyed doing the painting and developed an affection for Zoe as I worked on it. I spent a lot of time with her, looking at the many pictures Thom gave me until I thought I knew her.

So thank you, too, for giving me the pleasre of spending time with Zoe.

I sent you an e-mail. I just want to say that I have no hard feelings and I am not ignoring you. Your paintings are well done!
