Watercolor of a Beloved Pet

Hello Friends,

This is Sparky, a Labrador retriever who passed away recently.  He belonged to some friends of mine whom I haven’t seen in many years but who are always going to be special to me, Tim, Maureen and Jamie Hatch.  I will be mailing it to them soon.  I just finished it last night.

The original photo I worked from was on Maureen’s Facebook page.  The lines in his form were difficult to see in some places but I printed it out and decided to try and paint Sparky anyway so they would have something special to hang up and remember him by in addition to their own pictures.  The photo came out a little bit lighter than it actually is, though.  It is in a black frame which really brings everything out nicely.  I added grass around him instead of what was in the photo which was the inside of their car.  I think they were on their way to the vet the day they took the photo.

It is always sad to say good-bye to our pets.  I have had to do it a few times with dogs and hamsters.  The good news is that their memory will always be in our hearts.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug, and give those beloved pets of yours some extra love!  🙂

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
