One of the saddest things that I am asked to do this time of year is paint a posthumous portrait of a beloved pet. Having been there myself, I know the pain of losing a longtime (and sometimes not so longtime) friend. This is Buster, who crossed the rainbow bridge this past October.
This may be the last piece I create in 2009. I promise the new year will be full of new, exciting and consistent work (fingers crossed).
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
