Okay ....here is the portrait of an incredibly gifted
little dog, by an unbelievably talented, awesome artistic soul - we really are lucky to have her here as a member!!!
The following is a picture of the "model" !
And if you want a look ... this is my son opening it on Christmas Day! He was really happy about it - and thought it was framed photo's! Hee hee hee! Justin opening Artwork - YouTube
He's (generally) a somber, serious sort of young man, so the big smile tells me he loves it (and he did actually tell me that, in words anyhow
I had to laugh at his "it's unusually loose on the back" comment - he could feel the wire hanging thingy the picture framer guy put on it, so of course it's loose.
Anyhow, I find it to be an incredible piece. She has captured his dog, not only in physical terms, but there is as gentleness, yet very alert essence I see in the artwork - and that is definitely my sons dogs spirit. When he's had seizures out in the yard or up the back paddocks (he has epilepsy), she comes and gets someone, usually by going to a window where she knows someone is in that room and barks like crazy to get our attention - she is such a clever dog and adores my son.
Caitlin is so talented, I am in awe!
