...and here's Maggie's new brother, Buster, a Beagle mix who is also a rescued pup!  When you scroll down to see Maggie, you'll realize that it was truly a blessing that Buster was offered for adoption at the same time.  I suspect that Buster helped Maggie recover from her intense fear, and likewise, Maggie must have helped Buster.  Together they are enjoying a new life full of love and security with lots of play time!  They're truly special little pups.  Everytime I've heard of rescued animals being adopted, and from my own personal experiences, it seems they never forget who saved them!  I just love stories like Maggie and Buster with happy endings...or shall I say happy beginnings! 
If you have a story of rescuing a pup, kitty, bird or horse whose portrait you'd like painted, please email me at jeanneillenye@sbcglobal.net

Hello Jeanne,
Love,love,love Maggie and Buster's portraits. The printed fabric, draped and folded all around them is wonderfully done. Not to mention the dogs' sweet faces. My gosh.... amazing.

Thank you SO much, Anyes! I, too, just love these two portraits! The moment I saw Maggie's and Buster's gorgeous photos, then learned of their rescue, I was so excited to have the opportunity to paint their portraits! Always lovely to hear from you, thank you! Hugs, Jeanne

I am amazed at how you depicted the fabric appliques and bias edging. I can feel it visually, if that makes any sense! And of course, the precious pup. Your client must be thrilled!

Thank you so much. Details like that are what make painting such fun! I'm partial to quilts myself, especially when they've been washed and show some puckering to enhance the effect. Thanks again!
