About a month ago a dear friend and client of mine, Leni Onkka (and her daughter, Kelsey) asked me to send them my “favorite” photo of my dogs – as in ONE favorite photo of my dogs. I snickered at first, because how could I possibly choose just one? So I sent her 24 (you can view them here), and tried to ask no questions.
Leni and I had one of our unforgettable meetings yesterday. She and her family presented me with this masterful work of art….a very talented artist’s rendition of those 24 photos I sent – on canvas. The amazing artist’s name is Katie Maher, of Salida, Colorado. Please take a closer look at her incredible talent at: KatieMaherFineArt.com. I highly recommend asking her to create one of these for you.
Leni and family, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity (and sneakiness, thoughtfulness, and creativity). I appreciate you all more than you know…..and I promised a photo of where the gorgeous painting would grace our wall. I’ve been “saving” this particular space above Legendary Echo‘s canvas print (which I see now is a bit crooked, ha!) for just the right portrait of the current “Terrible Three” – I’ve just been too lazy to make it happen. But you just did, and for that I am forever grateful. It is simply perfect….and I’ve teared up many times gazing at it, right there on the wall with my Girly.
