If you have been reading my blog for the past few years...........

you all pretty much know........Sophie by now.  She is my sweetest constant companion.  A little while back, Debra of Monnie Bean Folk Art blog asked me if she might copy this photo of Sophie so that she could later on paint it.  Which was fine with me.......

in the mail .........arrived this sweet little painting.........of Sophie! Didn't Debra catch her personality perfectly? Now this painting is hanging by the fireplace where we can always enjoy looking at it.
So first of all Debra, thank  you..........what a wonderful painting!
Next, I would like to tell you all .........Debra not only paints, she also makes sculptures, dolls, and wonderful folk art.  She tells me that with this painting of Sophie, she is launching a whole area to her painting..................painting portraits of people's pets!
You can visit Debra's blog at this link
and you can view more of her work at her Etsy shop

Please stop by to tell her hello!

Now that Sophie has become famous as a model will she be giving dog prints instead of autographs, Kathleen?

The painting is beautiful Kathleen. In her blog, Debra talks about flaws but I think that's what makes it perfect. (If there are any, which I can't see.) Thanks for directing us to her blog and etsy. I think the pet portraits are such a good idea. I will follow her blog.

What a sweet gesture and a beautiful rendering of Sophie. Yes, I've gotten to know Sophie alongside of you. We both have a 4 legged companion who loves us. How special!
