To be precise, my husband and I visited an adorable Norwich Terrier named Toby, as well as our dear friends, Carey and John, Toby’s owners.

The portrait I painted of Toby, a Norwich Terrier, as a surprise for Carey last year is displayed in their home. It was commissioned by Carey’s husband, John, as a Christmas gift – and Carey indeed wondered why John was suddenly so busy photographing Toby. We were the fortunate and happy weekend guests of this crowd…great fun!

Toby and Carey...and Toby!

Toby and Carey…and Toby!

I met Carey in 7th grade. She and John are wonderful people and dear friends. Toby is a very endearing two year old who likes to lick people’s legs.

As an artist, it’s always a thrill to see my work displayed. The happiness that Carey felt when she showed us Toby’s portrait truly warmed my heart. I love what I do, and I’m so fortunate that others do as well.


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!
