My Girls Have Come Home

Yes, after a couple of weeks at the framer (is that a word?) my girls have come home.
This is a portrait of my lovely girls, past and present, done by Kristin Osgood, an artist who works with my sister. She really captured the personalities of each dog - their eyes are so true-to-life, it's almost freaky. She incorporated a lot of personalized items into the painting - forget-me-nots, their favorite toys, how they all center around Scarlett. Kristin is so very talented, and she really "got" each of the dogs and captured them magnificently. I'm afraid my photography of the painting doesn't do it justice.

Here is a picture of my funny-faced Scarlett that Kristin used for the painting. She asked for several pictures of each of the dogs, and wanted to know all about their personalities, and it really comes through in the painting. Even though Scarlett will be gone three years next month, I still miss her each and every day. She really left a hole in my heart.

Mellie is still doing well. She ate 12 chicken nuggets for breakfast, and 12 more for dinner tonight. It's a good day. Any day she eats is a very good day.

I was wondering about that pic and have been scrolling backwards in some of your posts to learn more about you - and your kids. The portrait is SO special...
