I wanted to gift a pet portrait to a new friend who is moving away soon. I know she has a horse so I went looking in her Facebook page for any good reference photos of her horse. As I went through her photos, I encountered an adorable photo of her dog, Georgia. The sad part is that it was posted because Georgia had just died. As I went deeper in her timeline, I saw that she and Georgia had been partners for some time, and it must have indeed been very sad to lose her. I know what it's like to love and lose dogs, I've experienced that with several dog-friends myself. At the risk of touching on the sadness and grief, I decided to go ahead and paint a portrait of Georgia. She has received it now and has expressed to me that she is very touched by this.
