Olive's Portrait!

My parents brought Olivia's completed portrait to Blowing Rock this weekend and I could not be more thrilled!

Pretty darn close to an exact twin!

It's a bit more modern than my typical art style so I opted to put in my mud room with some other dog themed decorations.

Bench is a hand-me-down that I've thought about painting, but the red has grown on me.  Bow and green and brown plates are from Anthro -- from college.  The spaniel plate is from Spode's Woodland collection and the little dog plate at the bottom is from a chateau (Cheverny) in France.

After hanging it on a narrow wall by itself it looks a little small, so I may have it framed.

Here are 3 of the other family dogs Cat (my mom's friend's daughter) has done -- all equally darling and fun!  Maysie (cocker spaniel) is just being held up, but the other two dogs hang together in my parents' kitchen.

They are very reasonable
$70 for 11x14
$90 14x18
$105 16x20
$125 18x24

Josh's quote, "Why exactly do we need a portrait of Olivia when she is still alive?"  I think it might be creepier if I'd had it commissioned after she was in dog heaven!
