Had to Share this

You may remember that my sweet Cloudy cat passed away shortly after Christmas.  My painter-artist friend Cindy offered to paint Cloudy's portrait for me.  Well, she brought it to me today and I just HAD to share it with you!  Its excellent!  No, its BEYOND excellent!!

This is the picture she worked from:

And this is her masterpiece:
11" x 14" Acrylic on Canvas

And yes, of course, I burst into tears when she gave it to me.....such a crybaby, I am.   I absolutely love it! She said it 'painted up' really quickly and she mentioned to me how sometimes the paintings just come together and other times she struggles with them.  Just like beading!  That happens to me all the time, too. 

I will treasure this always...................Thanks Cindy!

How thoughtful.

Shortly after my two favorite dogs (brothers) died, my daughter placed their portrait in a glass frame and etched the picture into the glass. She HATES crafts, so that gesture was so heartwarming.

Only the receiver of such a gift can fully understand how special the gift is, and the special feelings you have for the giver.

You are blessed.
