A Portrait ~ My Early Birthday Gift

Look what the UPS man delivered on Tuesday!
This oil painting was an early birthday gift from Patrick. I had been wanting a portrait of our 2 babies for some time, so we asked NY artist Amarillis Kroon if she would do us the honors. These photos don't even do it justice. I currently have the portrait in our bedroom so I can lay in bed and enjoy it. (Dogs on the bed with me~dogs on the wall!) I can't believe how well she captured Hootie and Baby Rocket Dog's personalities. I'm thrilled. If anyone is interested in commissioning Ami to do a portrait her website is www.amikroon.com . If you are a dog-blogger you will recognize Ami as Asta, the Wirehaired Fox Terrier's mama. Thanks Ami. We will enjoy this painting of the pooches forever.

This is just fabulous - I know there was some squealing going on when you opened that box. Now I know what I want for Christmas.

What a wonderful birthday gift! I believe in celebrating birthdays the whole month. Happy Birthday!

Your gift just gave me an idea. My husband would enjoy a painting of our wild and crazy Mr. Bojangles.
