If you've been following my blog lately, you know that I love animals and enjoy painting portraits of pets. I am sad to say I am currently pet-less. While I'm enjoying a new-found sense of freedom, I have to say I often miss that furry companionship. Echo and Wanda were my most recent companions. They behaved like little dogs, greeting me at the door, following me around the house, and talking to me. They especially loved it when I spent time in my art studio, where they would roost either at my feet or on my painting table where they could watch the action. I think they sensed that I was both calm and energized by my creative activities and they liked sharing in those experiences with me.
