"Sally" 5x7 Memorial Portait. Private Collection. ©Shelly Burden 2013

I met Todd and his wife at an art event where they shared memories and stunning photos of their recently passed Sally.

As we spoke it was obvious how much this beautiful dog was being missed, the love and companionship they shared.
Can't help but think if I spent my time at art shows scanning emails or sitting away appearing disinterested, I'd never have met Sally's family, learned about this sweet girl or had the honor of painting her portrait.

So thank you for stopping by my shows, it's always delightful seeing you! 

You are my muses and although I've said it before I'll say bazillion times more...I meet the most awesome people in my line of work!

Have a great day and look forward to seeing you at Art on the Greene this weekend!
