Speechless

I'm truly blessed with the best friends in the world.  While I have been grieving over the loss of our sweet Bonnie Blue, my friend, Ellen Moore, painted this portrait of her:

"Bonnie Blue Treleaven" by Ellen Moore
8" X 8"
oils on canvas

Ellen is a fellow Red Dot student and dog lover.  She has two feisty Irish Setters who bring her lots of joy.

I was completely speechless when Ellen presented me with the portrait.  Her generous spirit touches us all everyday,  and I have to admit that this portrait is probably the most thoughtful thing anyone has ever done for me.

Please go see Ellen's art on her website HERE.  You will appreciate her talent and art.

Until next time…

Blessings!

  11. Oh honey it's beautiful, now you have your sweet Bonnie Blue to see her for ever! What a wonderful friend you have and so talented! We too have our pug Ben in an artwork a famous artist did for us, not a gift, but I adore it, as I see our Ben on the Wall everyday I pass by.
    Happy Easter dear Ricky Jill.

  20. That is truly the sweetest gift ever. A friend of mine painted Lucy for us when she was a puppy. We have it hanging over her bowls now and will always cherish it. I hope this painting makes you smile and think of her with joy:)
