K-9 comfort

Sent off this commission and had to share this sweet paper boy with you.  Is he not the sweetest?  The entire time I was working away on this art, I could not help feel his tail thumping, his tongue panting, and his eyes sparkling on me.  The artwork will be a holiday gift for a very special man.

Did you hear about these K-9 dogs delivering calm?  I know my dog calms me and always gives me comfort every day.

If you have not entered my give it away - please do so by leaving a comment over here as to what would bring you comfort and joy from my etsy pve shop.  I really do love etsy and in the New Year, I will be filling it up with some brand new work.

Patricia - you captured his expressive eyes beautifully!!

If I won your giveaway, I would choose to have an illustration of my Mother. Her age is 91 or as she says "almost 92" :)

I loved the story about the K9 comfort dogs. Doggie snuggles are truly the best!

This is a lovely portrait. Being a dog lover myself, I was so happy to hear about the Goldens being deployed to Connecticut. And thank you so much for the beautiful selection of your cards, Patricia. They are stunning!
Merry Christmas!

I just came across your blog. Lovely image of the sweet dog. I like very much the offer of a custom dog portrait. Am I to late to sign up? I love my dog as much as my children, in fact they call her their sister. Thanks Liz

Patricia,
Every illustration of yours leaves a wonderful feeling....especially this one. The notes I have of yours are my favorites and I love to send them...not only are the illustrations gorgeous, but the paper is thick and luxurious and I love the way you wrap them up...like a gift.

Love all of your work. It brings me joy and comfort itself. But I would loooove a custom painting of my home. One day :)

I love this gorgeous boy. Of course, My Jones is a gift that gives every moment of his existence......except when he is steeling food (or trash) and my yummy shoes-usually the newest pair.
Thanks for making my day, xoxoxo Mary
