Sunday Snapshot ... Finished Portrait!

I told you in THIS post about evolution of the design of the portrait that my husband is painting of our greyhound Daniel and me, and I promised to show it to you as soon as it was finished.  It's finished ...  What do you think?



Makes me all teary when I look at it, because this image perfectly captures the relationship that Daniel and I had.  The look on my face, the way he is listening as I was whispering to him ... makes me happy and gives me a lump in my throat all at the same time.

Happy Sunday, Everybody!!

  2. Well its just beautiful Connie. What a treasure you have to keep. I can remember being worried about how the deck was laid out in the painting but i need not have worried as it looks exactly like you are sitting on the corner of the deck. Beautiful job! Hugs! deb

  22. What an incredibly wonderful work of art, Connie. You must be so very proud of your talented husband! How lucky you are! I've been immersed in winter projects lately, but always think about gardening this time of year - which then had me thinking of YOU! (I'm making my roses "wish list".) I hope I can make it down your way this spring, and hopefully you'll let me know if you open your gardens for a tour! Cindy Crane from TheCranesNest.com
