"Maggie"
10x8 inches / oil on panel

Maggie, a Rat Terrier, was rescued by my client's daughter when she saw a photo of her online.  It was love at first sight!  So, although ill at the time, she hopped on a train and endured the 3+ hour ride to meet Maggie for the first time.  They had another pup there also, just in case she didn't like Maggie.  Well, you can anticipate the happy ending...she took both home right away!  Maggie spent the first week in her new home, huddled in a corner shivering with fear, but as you can see, her recovery is fabulous!  Love conquers all.  Look for her new brother, Buster a Beagle mix, coming up on my blog tomorrow!

This portrait, as well as the companion piece of Buster, are just wonderful. It's inspiring to see rescue dogs finding good homes, and the depiction of them is wonderful. Thanks so much, Jeanne, for sharing your talent!

Thank you SO much, Carol! It's always a special joy painting those who were rescued and have had a chance to begin a new life again! I truly feel connected to them while I create their portraits and try to reveal their story and their happiness through their eyes! Thank you!
