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!
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!
