Although each painting is special, it's even more so when working with previous clients, or those who've received my painting(s) as a gift.  
Such was the case with Polly. After receiving her gifts she wrote:
"My mother in law, Sharon, just gave us 2 ornaments you painted of our yellow labs.
We love them and I just had to get one for my Mom!"
