We often look at events around us and think "That's just not fair." One of those events is the fact that we generally outlive our pet friends. Such was the case with Daisy Mae, who left her people too soon. I was honored to do a memorial portrait of her. She has the sweetest face, and my clients indicated they think I captured her spirit. I have two portraits hanging in my dining room of the friends I lost. I see them everyday and while I'm very sad they are gone, I have the good memories of them flash back every time I see them. While I hate doing memorial portraits, I love doing memorial portraits and helping loving people remember their friends forever.
